REF: 185-A-19-68231 CLOSING DATE: 17th September

We are looking for a pharmacy leader who is innovative and experienced to join the team providing pharmaceutical care to our patients in General Surgery, Specialist Surgery, Theatres and Ophthalmology surgery.

Over the past two years we have developed the service provided by pharmacy to the surgical division to be agile and responsive in order to provide the best care for patients undergoing elective and non-elective surgery. As a prescriber the post-holder will ensure safe management of medicines throughout the peri-operative period for a range of specialist surgical patients.

The Royal Devon & Exeter NHS Foundation Trust is an 800-bed teaching hospital with a pharmacy team of 130 staff. We are recognised as a high performing Trust with a reputation for delivering quality patient care and have recently received a good rating by the Care Quality Commission.

The postholder will support and develop a team of junior pharmacists and medicines management technicians. The right person will have a proven track record in the specialty and the appetite to evolve the service in this patient group.

You must be highly self-motivated, able to demonstrate leadership skills and have the ability to plan and work, both independently and as part of the wider healthcare team, to deliver excellent pharmaceutical care to our patients. You should also be willing to complete the non-medical prescribing qualification if not already qualified.

If you believe you have the skills and experience necessary to fulfill this role we look forward to hearing from you.
