Band 7 rotational pharmacist advert

This is a great opportunity for a pharmacist to join our well respected clinical team and work at MFT, Oxford Road Campus.  Here at MFT we aim to be one of the leading Trusts in the country. In line with this, the pharmacy department aims to be a lead for clinical pharmacy, medicines management, clinical governance, and research and development.


The department is continuously seeking opportunities to further improve the pharmacy service to clinical areas. This specialist rotation is one of those. Central Manchester has many specialist services and nationally recognised leads in these specialities. You will work within these specialities and with other rotational staff to improve our extended hours services in addition to the day services. The new educational programme developed with this rotation will ensure that the individual is highly skilled in dealing with most of the specialist clinical services provided by Central Manchester. This is an excellent framework for any pharmacy career.


This post offers the opportunity to further your knowledge and skills within many different specialities in one of the largest teaching hospitals in Europe. Training in all these specialities will be developed by our highly skilled education team most of whom lead modules at undergraduate and diploma level at the University of Manchester and delivered by the Lead Clinical Pharmacist, and experienced team members in each clinical speciality. You will be supported in all aspects of their role by one of our lead Clinical Pharmacists for Education. There will be regular feedback, teaching and assessment throughout the training as well as appraisals and one

to one meetings to deal with personal performance and development.


You will provide an excellent clinical service to patients of all specialities at central Manchester. You will be part of the multidisciplinary teams whenever working in a speciality and with the 'hospital at night teams' attending ward rounds to influence safe and efficient prescribing of medicines. The new rotation's working hours allow a good work life balance whilst providing essential services to patients and delivering a truly 24/7 service. To achieve this you will be required to work within a rotational shift pattern which will include shifts throughout the department's 24 hour / 7 day service.


You will be working as a band 7 in a specialist rotation and will therefore be able to work as an active team member as well as on your own initiative as you will be asked to achieve agreed objectives. You will be approachable and supportive to other members of staff as you will be involved in training other healthcare professionals. Good written and verbal communication skills are essential, as are problem solving skills and the ability to think on your feet in a fast moving area. You will be motivated to continue to learn and develop specialist skills as well as make suggestions to improve the service provided where possible. You should be able to motivate others and to work calmly and in an organised fashion in a busy environment.


You must be registered with the General Pharmaceutical Council; have completed at least one year of the postgraduate clinical diploma; and can demonstrate that you have the ability to successfully complete it.


A specially developed training programme will ensure all of our many specialities are taught in many different ways, to suit all learning styles. Regular meetings and appraisal will help you to plan your objectives and training needed for future career aspirations. Opportunities are available to attend relevant study days. The department is committed to supporting pharmacists through the Supplementary Prescribing Course.


Our department is vibrant, friendly and social and has regular nights out. The Trust is located close to the University of Manchester and City Centre with good transport links within the city. This is an exciting time to be joining the Trust's clinical pharmacy team as we transition into the Single Hospital Service. For an informal chat please contact Gill Butler on
