The Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is one of the largest NHS teaching trusts in the country. It provides a wide range of general and specialist clinical services and is a base for medical education, training and research.

The Trust comprises of four hospitals - the John Radcliffe Hospital, Churchill Hospital and Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre in Headington and the Horton Hospital in Banbury.

Our values, standards and behaviours define the quality of clinical care we offer and the professional relationships we make with our patients, colleagues and the wider community. We call this Delivering Compassionate Excellence and its focus is on our values of compassion, respect, learning, delivery, improvement and excellence. These values put patients at the heart of what we do and underpin the quality healthcare we would like for ourselves or a member of our family. Watch how we set out to deliver compassionate excellence via the OUH YouTube channel.

Many of our recruitment programmes use values-based interviewing to identify those who have the skills we seek, who share our values and who are able to deliver compassionate excellence from the outset. We know that this makes a significance difference to your job satisfaction and above all the outcomes and experience of our patients and their families.

Do you want to take your clinical skills to the next level, have access to EIGHT consultant pharmacists and work in one of the biggest tertiary referral hospitals in the U.K ?

We are looking for a highly motivated pharmacist who would like to become part of our clinical pharmacy team that provides class leading care and support to virtually every specialty across our four sites. We will consider applications from pharmacists who are at band 6 or 7 levels. Band 6 pharmacists with the right skills, experience and attitude who are looking to complete a clinical diploma or about to complete their clinical diploma will be considered for these posts. We are dedicated to your development and support independent prescribing, RPS portfolio development and MSc’s in clinical pharmacy to mention just a few initiatives. We are looking into developing advanced pharmacy practioners as part of a wider initiative supporting innovative delivery of care on a more ambulatory basis.

We are leading the way nationally as a digital hospital of the future and have recently been awarded £10million to develop this further. The implementation of electronic tablet technology to provide mobile Pharmacy solutions together with the introduction of new robot technology and a comprehensive ward based pharmacy service has revolutionised the way we provide pharmaceutical care. We have close integration with clinical teams, divisions and academic institutions meaning you will have the best possible platform to develop your skills and knowledge whilst providing high class clinical care.

This is a unique opportunity to become involved in shaping pharmacy services within rapidly changing and evolving clinical areas. The posts will require a degree of autonomy and organisation, but you will be well supported and mentored in all aspects of this position. You must be forward thinking, enthusiastic and highly motivated to share the vision we have at Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust.

Please be aware that this post may close early if we have sufficient interest for the posts available.
