Specialist Pharmacist - Clinical Pharmacy Services: Oncology & Haemat

Posted 18 September by NHS Business Services Authority

The Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital is a modern, forward thinking teaching hospital offering acute care to a population of over 1 million. Electronic prescribing and medicines administration (EPMA) has been implemented across all inpatient wards, the Emergency Department and, most recently as part of our response to COVID-19, to outpatients. We have strong links with both the School of Pharmacy and the Medical School at the nearby University of East Anglia with onsite teacher practitioner posts.

The Pharmacy Department is at the forefront of healthcare delivery with a strong focus on medicines management and innovative pharmaceutical practice. It is challenging the current professional roles resulting in a number of innovative new pharmacy led developments and new posts, including pharmacists working within pre-op assessment and out-patient clinics and in our ED and admissions units.

Norwich itself is a vibrant city, with excellent shopping, restaurants and nightlife, yet surrounded by beautiful countryside. The unique combination of the Norfolk Broads, picturesque coastline and a choice of city or rural living make Norwich an ideal home. An opportunity has arisen for a full-time Band 7 Pharmacist to join the Oncology and Haematology Pharmacy team. The post holder will be based in the Colney Centre and provide a clinical pharmacy service to Weybourne Day Unit and Mulbarton Ward.

Key roles will focus on chemotherapy verification, co-ordination and advice on all aspects of the chemotherapy service as part of a multidisciplinary team and a clinical ward pharmacy service. Operation and updating of the e-prescribing system for chemotherapy, management of the cancer drugs fund and NHS England commissioned systemic anti-cancer treatments plus close collaboration with preparative services, dispensary and procurement to ensure the timely and safe provision of these therapies are also significant roles.

Additionally the post-holder will be given the opportunity to participate in service developments within the team including the set-up and running of pharmacy led clinics for oral chemotherapy treatments. Training will be provided. This post is for full time employment. However, applications from those seeking part-time employment or job shares are welcomed. Please specify within your application how many days/hours you would ideally like to work.

To support 7 day working all staff are required to work 1 in 10 weekends with corresponding time off given during the week. All staff are required to undertake at least one bank holiday duty per year. All rotas are subject to review at any time.

Full time: 37.5 hours per week
