The Drug Expenditure Programme (DEP) is a high profile Pharmacy-led project that is taking place across all sites of Kings College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. The Clinical Informatics & DEP team is an expanding team within the forward thinking Pharmacy Department that uses multiple sources of information to improve patient care through optimising the value the NHS gets from medicines. We work with the wider pharmacy team to plan, launch, track and provide feedback on DEP. In this financial year, there are over 100 initiatives running with identified opportunities of over £10million.

We have a unique and exciting opportunity for a data analyst to join our team. Reporting to the Principal Clinical Informatics and DEP pharmacist and working closely with members of the pharmacy team, you will be responsible for managing the tracker for DEP as well as analysing routine and adhoc reports using a variety of data analysis tools.

This is a new post to support the team as DEP has grown year on year. The team is also expanding their role in benchmarking and using data more smartly to inform best practice. The role represents a great opportunity for you to use your analytical skills to provide ongoing support to the senior pharmacy management team with the planning and monitoring of service delivery. You will have opportunities to gain experience of working with Trust finance, external stakeholders and other staff outside of Pharmacy.

We are looking for candidates who have excellent IT skills, significant experience of working with Microsoft Excel, attention to detail and reasoning skills. Good communication skills are essential (both written and verbal). Training will be provided to develop your knowledge and understanding of particular systems and resources specific to pharmacy as needed.

The successful candidate will be required to work across both sites, being largely based at Denmark Hill but travelling to the Princess Royal University Hospital as needed.
