Apply for this job

Are you an enthusiastic pharmacist looking to develop your clinical knowledge and skills? We have an exciting opportunity for a patient focused pharmacist to join our clinical pharmacy team based at Hopewood Park Hospital in Sunderland.

Applicants should have excellent communication and team working skills and self-motivation to contribute to the development and delivery of the pharmacy service.

We welcome applications from pharmacist colleagues working in all sectors of the profession. Prior working experience in mental health is not essential, as a comprehensive programme of education, training and clinical supervision will be provided. We will support you to provide high quality services to patients and healthcare professionals.

We provide pharmacy and medicines optimisation services to all of our inpatient areas and the postholder will have opportunities to work across different specialities including adult acute and rehabilitation services at Hopewood Park and older persons’ services at Monkwearmouth Hospital.

We also provide support to various other services and there will be opportunities to work into learning disability services, crisis teams in Sunderland and South Tyneside as well as the psychiatric liaison team based at Sunderland Royal Hospital.

Across our Trust, pharmacy staff are fully integrated into and regarded as valued members of the multi-disciplinary team. We have a number of pharmacist independent prescribers, who are active within a range of clinical services including dementia teams, STOMP clinics, Children and Young People services and community adult mental health services.

Our clinical services include:

  • Medicines reconciliation and review on admission and discharge.
  • Supporting patients and carers with the management of their medicines
  • Optimising medicines, taking a holistic view of both mental and physical healthcare needs.
  • Physical health and wellbeing advice
  • Discharge planning and liaison with primary care

We take pride in developing our pharmacists through formal and informal study, clinical supervision and training. This includes offering opportunities to undertake post-graduate diplomas and the independent prescriber qualification.

We are an award-winning team with a proven track record in delivering high quality, safe pharmaceutical services. Our portfolio includes medicines supply, clinical pharmacy and clinical governance functions. We have an innovative and progressive approach to service design and delivery which has been recognised and commended by the Care Quality Commission, the Royal Pharmaceutical Society and the Health Services Journal.

We are a research-active service, enjoying close working relationships with local Universities in teaching and research. We work collaboratively with other Trusts and commissioners across the region on areas of common interest.

Cumbria, Northumberland, Tyne and Wear NHS Foundation Trust is one of the largest Mental Health Trusts in the UK. In addition to secondary care services, we also deliver regional and national specialist services.

The North East of England and North Cumbria offers affordable house prices and fantastic quality of life opportunities. It includes some of Britain’s most beautiful scenery and coastline, national parks and ancient heritage sites.

All applicants must be registered with the General Pharmaceutical Council.
