Band 8a Clinical Pharmacist – Newcastle

Hunter Gatherer AHP have an excellent opportunity based with a large NHS hospital in Newcastle.

The post holder will work clinically to support the delivery of pharmacy services across the trust in order to achieve the best use of relevant medicines. There is an array of ward-based work to cover so there will be flexibility on this given a candidate's prior wards experience. The post holder will need to deputise for the Band 8b Pharmacist where necessary and would be line managed by the Deputy Chief Pharmacist.
