Medical Lead Pharmacist (Central) - Band 8b

Due to the promotion of the current post-holder, the position of Medical Lead Pharmacist has become vacant.

We are looking for a dynamic and forward thinking individual to lead on the development of clinical pharmacy services and medication safety improvements within medical specialities.  The successful applicant will promote and support the continued development of integrated clinical pharmacy services and patient care to patients within medical specialities. This will be achieved through team leadership, multidisciplinary and collaborative working, both in primary and secondary care, while working closely alongside the Lead Pharmacists for Surgery and Unscheduled Care.

The post is based at Glan Clwyd Hospital which has undergone an extensive redevelopment programme including a new modern, pharmacy department. There is a strong ethos of development and innovation: we have a number of non-medical prescribers running clinic sessions in their specialist areas and automated drug cabinets on most of our wards.

Research and development opportunities will be available and we actively encourage career progression by offering funded places on the Independent prescribing course and the Advanced Clinical Practice MSc (run by Bangor and Glyndwr Universities).

This is a full-time permanent post (37.5 hours) although part-time hours (30 hours or more) would be considered.

The ability to speak Welsh is desirable for this post; Welsh and/or English speakers are equally welcome to apply.

Closing Date:  14th July 2020
