Solving clinical problems is a vital part of every clinical pharmacist’s job.
In this role, you’ll get the satisfaction of having your own varied wards for clinical pharmacy. Yet at University Hospital Southampton we offer you so much more! Clinical problem solving is our bread and butter, but we go above and beyond a ward role.
In the Medicines Advice team you’ll be helping a wide range of healthcare professionals to manage complex clinical situations and get the fulfilment that they have actively sought out your help. It’s gratifying that we get lots of feedback from consultants, GPs, pharmacists and patients that our clinical advice is extremely valued and improves patient care.
We also counsel and advise patients after they’ve left our hospital via the Trust’s medicines helpline. This is a busy and professionally satisfying role that gives you patient contact throughout the day, even when you aren’t on your wards.
You’ll be advising on (and therefore learning about) a complete range of clinical specialities from both primary and secondary care, and the clinical skills you’ll be honing are completely transferable to other areas of pharmacy. Our pharmacists are regularly complimented on their advanced level clinical skills, so if after your time with us you decide to move to another area of clinical pharmacy then you’ll already be a cut above the rest.
Whilst clinical problem solving is hugely important, we will equip you with many more skills to become a well rounded and confident pharmacist. All our band 7 pharmacists have short and long-term projects on the go, including training and supervising pre-registration pharmacists, practice research, and publishing about medicines. Our NHS website is used throughout the UK and 94% of pharmacists say it improves their clinical decisions.
We’ll support your development through mentoring and training designed to meet your individual needs, and provide the study leave you need. Our working environment means there’ll always be senior clinical pharmacists on hand when you need them. We are well known for being a friendly supportive team.
If you’re a band 6 pharmacist who is looking for the next challenge, or a band 7 pharmacist who wants to take their clinical skills to the next level, then this is the role for you. If you’d like to learn more, chat, or want to pop in for a visit.
Please be advised that this vacancy may close earlier than stated if large numbers of applications are received.
Due to the volume of applications we receive, we are unable to acknowledge receipt of your application. If you have not heard from us within four weeks of the closing date of this post, please presume that you have not been selected for interview.
