Alongside a dedicated pharmacy team, you will ensure accurate and complete Medicines Reconciliation is performed as close to admission as possible and will be instrumental in preventing delays and omissions in patients receiving essential treatment and expediting discharges from the Acute Medicine areas.
The department has a strong commitment to advancing pharmacy practice and embedding effective medicines management systems into patient care; looking to appoint individuals keen to be involved in the further development of this service.
Working on a fast-paced AMU and SSU allows you to be involved with a diverse range of patients, and work closely with the wider MDT to treat patients in a way that delivers the best care.
