Clinical development opportunities include training and participation in post-take ward rounds, anti-coagulation clinics and may also provide the opportunity to undertake the Independent Prescribing course.

We are looking for enthusiastic pharmacists with demonstrable competencies in hospital pharmacy practice, excellent communication skills and a demonstrable commitment to pharmaceutical care.
