Are you looking to be a part of an exciting opportunity to be involved in a rapid service expansion? Following on from a complete refurbishment of the Pharmacy department, involving significant investment, we now have a large twin robot, modern open-plan dispensary and new outpatient pharmacy. The next step for MKUH Pharmacy is to expand and develop further our patient facing service by increasing our ward teams with additional medicines management trained technicians. To be eligible to join us in this role you will have successfully completed an NVQ Level 3 in Pharmacy Services and hold current registration with the GPhC as a Pharmacy Technician at the time of appointment.

This post is open to all registered Pharmacy Technicians looking to be a part of this exciting expansion. If you are not currently ACPT or MMT trained, development will be offered through our in-house course followed by funded training provided externally by nationally accredited programmes. We are a department of over 100 staff providing pharmacy services through team working and prioritising the needs of those we serve. Our Pharmacy Technicians provide a range of services in the Hospital Pharmacy including:

  • Dispensing for inpatients, outpatients and discharge
  • Aseptic production
  • Medicines safety
  • Workforce development
  • Procurement
  • Medicines information
  • Medicines management
  • Final checking
  • Working on a rotational basis, as required by the service, this role will broaden the skills you have and is an excellent career development opportunity. It helps us to ensure we have a service that can meet all of the demands that are placed on it.
