Specialist Pharmacist – Aseptics and Cancer Services (band 7)

We are looking for a dynamic and experienced hospital pharmacist to work with us in a post based within our Oncology and Haematology specialisms. We are in the process of re-developing the Aseptic and Cancer services provided to patients and the Trust.

We are seeking a patient focused pharmacist aiming to build on established clinical skills and work closely with clinicians in providing a high quality service to patients within ESHT. We also require someone who can demonstrate a commitment to personal and staff development.

We have a successful track record of delivering diploma training and applicants will be encouraged to complete their studies through the HEKSS commissioned foundation programme.

This post will be based at Conquest Hospital, although there may be an element of cross site working at Eastbourne. Under the supervision of our Lead Pharmacist for Aseptics and Cancer Services you will work closely with consultants, other medical staff, nurses and pharmacy staff in ensuring that medicine use is safe, rational, effective and evidence based across ESHT.

The post holder will be involved in providing clinical pharmacy services to the specialist Oncology - Haematology ward, Oncology/Haematology Day Units, Clinical Trials service and aseptic service provision.

This post also holds an education and training element, which in the past has proved successful in developing staff as a result of the skills they have acquired in people management and personnel development. This has led to many previous post-holders gaining promotion to lead or management positions. The successful candidate will also be responsible for helping to train and mentor pre-registration pharmacists, pharmacy undergraduates and rotational clinical pharmacists.

We are proud to provide ‘Outstanding’ care and be a great place to work

We provide safe, compassionate and high quality care to half a million people living or visiting East Sussex. We are one of the largest organisations in East Sussex, the only integrated provider of acute and community care in Sussex. Our extensive services are provided by 7000 + members of staff working from acute hospitals in Hastings and Eastbourne, three community hospitals in Bexhill, Rye and Uckfield, over 100 community sites and in people’s own homes.

In 2020 the Care Quality Commission rated us as ‘Good’ overall, and ‘Outstanding’ for being caring and effective. The Conquest Hospital and our Community Services are rated ‘Outstanding’. Eastbourne DGH rated ‘Good’.

In 2020, the Trust launched its ambitious ‘Building for our Future’ programme. This once in a lifetime programme aims to repair, redevelop and expand our hospitals, transforming the environment in which we provide care for generations to come.
