Interview date

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Band 8b pharmacist to join the Pharmacy Clinical Trials Unit at King's. You will work closely with the Chief Technician for Clinical Trials to lead, deliver, develop and evaluate pharmacy services to patients entered into clinical trials at King's College Hospital and at The Princess Royal Hospital in Bromley. We currently have over 250 studies open plus a large number in set up. Your main responsibility will be for the pharmaceutical elements of clinical trials to be compliant with national and European legislative requirements. However, your main focus will be to maintain performance against national and organisational targets.

You will work closely with other pharmacists and pharmacy staff, the King’s Health Partners Joint Clinical Trial Office and the Trust R&D Office regarding all aspects of clinical trial sponsor and host responsibilities including pharmacovigilance and product recall where required. You will be a member of the Trust Ethics committee and will attend regular R&D Leads meetings.

You will need an excellent and in-depth knowledge of the Clinical Trial Regulations, Research Governance and Good Clinical Practice to ensure a safe and efficient service for patients. You therefore must have substantial experience of providing pharmaceutical input into clinical trials. You will be responsible for leading a team of pharmacists, technicians and assistants in the management of all aspects of clinical trials and will require excellent communication and leadership skills.
