Senior Pharmacy Technician, Medicines Management – Band 5

We have an exciting opportunity to become a part of the medicines management pharmacy technician team based at our Denmark Hill site. The team delivers a high quality service to our patients on the wards at one of London's largest and busiest teaching hospitals.

The successful applicant will be involved in medicines reconciliation, supporting stock management, counselling patients and working with the pharmacists to provide an efficient and accurate clinical pharmacy service to patients at ward level. In addition, you will participate in general dispensary duties, including dispensing and accuracy checking. In order to be successful in this role, you will need to be organised, motivated, have excellent communication and people skills as well as the ability to adapt quickly to new situations.

Registration as a pharmacy technician with the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC) is essential as well as holding ACPT accreditation or be willing to work towards it. Previous experience of medicines management at ward level would be a significant advantage.

In return we can offer a professionally rewarding career with the opportunity for personal development along the way. If successful, you have the opportunity to be enrolled on a nationally recognised medicines management accreditation course.
