Job details
In this role, you’ll assist Senior Pharmacy Technicians in providing pharmacy specialist services such as in and outpatient dispensing, accuracy checking, patient counselling, ward stock and individual patient dispensed top-ups.
You’ll work alongside Pre-registration Pharmacy Technicians, Pharmacy Technicians and Assistant Technical Officers, and effectively communicate with medical and nursing staff to ensure timely availability of medicines.
Following departmental, Trust and professional standards and protocols, and without direct supervision, you’ll support Senior Pharmacy Technicians if needed, and prioritise your own, and junior staff’s, workloads. This will include dispensing a range of prescriptions, including clinical trials and complex regimens; accuracy checking; patient counselling; data input; and ward-based services such as discharge prescriptions.
This role involves working on weekend, late-night and Bank Holiday rotas.
This is a progressive role depending on experience and begin as a Band 4 but will progress to progress to Band 5 on completion of agreed criteria.
Applications welcome from pharmacy technicians qualifying this summer or from registered pharmacy technicians in community settings who wish to develop their career at Trafford Hospital .
You must hold a BTEC and NVQ Level 3 in Pharmaceutical Sciences or equivalent (or be qualifying imminently) and be registered as a pharmacy technician with the GPhC. Ideally, you’ll also have a BTEC Level 4 in Accuracy Checking Dispensed Medicines or equivalent recognised qualification.
You’ll understand and be adept at performing a range of work procedures and practices that require underpinning theoretical knowledge of dispensary processes, controlled drugs legislation, and medicines storage and security.
Confident and accurate in the dispensing process and computer software, you’ll be manually dexterous and able to communicate clearly with everyone from healthcare providers to the general public. You’ll be organising your day and workload, so you’ll need to be able to work independently, too.
If you have a mature attitude, are a team player, and committed to professional development in a healthcare setting, this could be your next best career move.
