Job Description

We are seeking a motivated and enthusiastic pharmacist to join our vibrant, energetic team in the Medicines Optimisation department.

The department plays a key role in supporting the clinical teams in the pharmacy department, as well as clinicians in the wider Trust.

In this role you will be a specialist pharmacist working in Medicines Information, and will maintain a clinical commitment to ward-based services, to provide pharmaceutical care to patients within the Trust to ensure safe, effective, economical and timely use of medication.

We want you to contribute to the provision of a high quality Medicines Information service to practitioners at Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust, primary healthcare professionals and the public in Manchester.

We deal with inquiries of varying complexity, including those from an established patient helpline, and also provide regular support to the Trust's Medicines Management Committees.

Training for the role will be provided and you will be supported by a senior pharmacist in Medicines Information who will provide assistance in personal development.

Our wider involvement with the Medicines Optimisation team means the service will continue to respond to national objectives. The team is a key provider of services relating to medicines optimisation strategies.

We're keen to hear from qualified and experienced pharmacists who have completed pre-registration training and a job-related Postgraduate qualification, such as a clinical diploma, or equivalent (or currently studying for this). A broad clinical knowledge is essential, and recent experience of working in a Medicines Information centre is desirable. Ideally you will have been involved in training colleagues.

It is essential that you can analyse complex information relating to patients' medication, as well as strong communications skills to ensure you can liaise effectively with patients and clinicians to deliver advice.

You must be able to work on your own initiative, but also within a team and you will be capable of recognising your own limitations. You will have good negotiation and influencing skills, as well as the ability to motivate others.

Ideally, you will have literature searching skills, basic critical appraisal skills and research and audit experience, although training can be given in some of these areas.
