Job Description

You can help to make a difference

Are you collaborative, caring and compassionate?

Prisons are one of the most challenging, yet rewarding places for healthcare professionals to work - if you’re looking for a role where you can develop your existing skills and learn something new every day, then this is the place to be.

As a healthcare provider, we recognise the fact that prisoners are a socially excluded group with complex healthcare needs that can often be associated with poor outcomes. We believe in putting the patient first, regardless of the environment or their history.

Care UK is the Health in Justice market leader - 2 years ago we were managing 12 prison healthcare services and in 2019 we're providing healthcare services in over 40 prisons across the country.

We can offer training and development in our friendly and supportive teams as well as full-time, part-time and bank opportunities and a range of other employee benefits.

What do we need from you so you can do the job?

A Senior Pharmacy Technician at HMP YOI Exeter will work closely with the existing primary care team, pharmacy team and on site pharmacist in the delivery of a high quality pharmacy service to the prison population.

You can expect to provide medicines management services to assist and support the primary care team to deliver effective clinical intervention and provide pharmacy related information to patients, prison officers and other healthcare professionals ensuring that the level of advice given is appropriate. The role requires the ability to administer medication and manage processes whereby patients are supported to manage their own in-possession medications effectively.

The Senior Pharmacy Technician will also assist with the implementation and development of pharmacy support to all wings in the prison which includes, where appropriate, counselling of patients on the correct use of medication.

In return for your hard work you will...

Receive an annual salary of up to £35,000 depending on experience. You'll also get a number of benefits including a company contributory pension scheme, 25 days annual leave plus 8 public bank holidays plus CPD and re-validation support.

Other benefits include cycle to work scheme, plus training and clinical development opportunities.

Next steps...

If you are shortlisted, you will be contacted by Wendy Atherley, the Internal Recruiter for this role.

The recruiter will submit your CV to the hiring manager and in turn Wendy will arrange an interview for you to attend at HMP YOI Exeter if the hiring manager feels that you are suitable for the job.

More Information...

This is a full-time role working 37.5 hours per week.

Please note that offers of employment are subject to Care UK Terms & Conditions and receipt of satisfactory references, an enhanced DBS check and prison vetting.

Please note that this role will close as soon as a sufficient number of applications have been received so please do apply early to avoid disappointment.
