A fantastic opportunity has arisen for an experienced, enthusiastic senior clinical Pharmacist with vision, excellent communication, organisational and leadership skills to join the Critical Care Pharmacy Team at King’s College Hospital.

King’s Critical Care is the largest Critical Care service in the United Kingdom, and one of the best performing. We are very fortunate to be opening a new state of the art 60 bed Critical Care Unit, of which the first phase is expected to open in Spring 2020. This will no doubt bring exciting new opportunities & challenges. Our patient case mix is very interesting and dynamic. Once phase 1 has opened, The Trust will have 90 level 2/3 beds, across 2 sites, 6 locations covering a broad range of Medical, Surgical and Neurosurgical specialities. We are recognised nationally and internationally for our work as a designated Liver transplant centre, Bone-marrow transplant centre, Trauma centre for the South East, as well as a tertiary neurology and cardiothoracic referral centre (including an ECMO service).

We are looking for a highly motivated individual with an interest and experience in Critical Care to join our Team.

The post holder will work to ensure the continued provision and development of high quality, comprehensive clinical pharmacy services to patients, influencing senior managers and clinicians within Critical Care. As a senior clinical pharmacist, you will deliver a clinical pharmacy service at foundation to excellence level as defined in the UKCPA Critical Care syllabus.

The Clinical Pharmacy Service at King’s is highly respected across the Trust and our staff work closely with multi-disciplinary teams. We are patient-centred, research-oriented and very progressive. At the same time, we work cohesively alongside senior managers and clinicians to provide comprehensive directorate services. Provision of support and training to progress and develop staff both personally and professionally is of utmost importance to us.

This post provides flexible and challenging opportunities for personal and professional development, both clinically and managerially. The successful applicant will be expected to be a team player with clinical experience, excellent interpersonal skills and meticulous attention to detail. The post holder must have at least foundation level clinical skills across a breadth of specialities, including some experience in critical care.
