Join us and become part of the most engaged workforce of any NHS trust in England, according to the latest national NHS Staff Survey results – for the second year running.

You will be joining a dynamic and forward-looking organisation in the heart of the capital where you can develop your career and broaden your horizons.

We think you will enjoy working for us but you don’t have to take our word for it – 79% of staff who took part in the latest national NHS Staff Survey would recommend Guy’s and St Thomas’ as a place to work.

NHS London Procurement Partnership has delivered in excess of £1.2bn of savings for the NHS since it was established in 2006. Its vision is one of enhanced NHS commercial expertise, of greater collaboration, of partnerships and, fundamentally, a common goal of driving quality and best value for patients from the NHS’s expenditure. LPP is committed to supporting its members and associates to derive the best value from national, local and regional contracts and frameworks, as well as facilitating collaborative procurement wherever possible. LPP is hosted by, but independent of, Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust. The role of the Information Manager (Pharmacy), who will be based at the LPP offices in central London, is to assist the Medicines Optimisation & Pharmacy Procurement category to identify savings and better practice opportunities across a range of pharmacy projects using a variety of benchmarking solutions. As part of the role, you will be expected to provide and present reports tracking benefits realisation to LPP, CCG and NHS trust Chief Pharmacists and Senior Managers. You will lead on the development and implementation of LPP information analysis for pharmacy and prescribing in both primary and secondary care, with particular emphasis on developing and maintaining appropriate databases. Through the provision and interpretation of data, you will support trust-based staff to identify lost opportunities in prescribing. You will support the delivery of national programmes for pharmacy in London by providing the necessary data analysis to help improve the quality of prescribing, and to achieve savings and efficiencies where appropriate. You will be a graduate with significant experience in a similar role, and with a BTEC in Pharmaceutical Science or equivalent. An expert in your field, you will have extensive experience of dealing with large, complex financial data sets. Advanced technical IT skills including an expert knowledge of MS Excel and Business Intelligence tools are essential to this role. If you have any questions about this role, then please contact Lee Joseph, Chief Operating Officer:; 02071886703

Applications from job seekers who require Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. However, non-EEA candidates may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced and skilled EU/EEA candidate is available to take up the post as the employing body is unlikely, in these circumstances, to satisfy the resident labour market test. UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) requires employers to complete this test to show that no suitably qualified EEA or EU worker can fill the post. For further information please visit the UKVI website. From 6 April 2017, Tier 2 skilled worker applicants, applying for entry clearance into the UK, must present a criminal record certificate from each country they have resided continuously or cumulatively for 12 months or more in the past 10 years.
