Full Time

£51,383 - £57,596 / year

Job Description

CNWL (Central and North West London NHS Foundation Trust) has almost 7,000 staff providing integrated healthcare to a third of London's population, Milton Keynes and areas beyond. We involve service users, carers, the public, staff and partner organisations in the way that we are run. You can become a member by visiting our website.

Our catchment area spans diverse communities, with over 100 first languages spoken. It contains areas of great affluence as well as areas of much deprivation. We are committed to providing services that meet the needs of the people who use them, and we actively encourage involvement from local people who can help make a difference. We’re proud of our diversity and we continue to undertake new initiatives to advance equality for LGBT+, BME and people with disabilities to promote good relations and understanding between our staff.

CNWL is recognised locally, nationally and internationally for providing high quality, innovative healthcare. We aim to employ only the best people, and our experts are frequently called upon to contribute to national health strategy and policy, and many models of our care have been adapted for use in other countries.


An opportunity has arisen to drive forward the medicines safety agenda in one of the largest non-acute trusts in England.

We are looking for an enthusiastic and organised pharmacist to support the Trust Medication Safety Officer in delivering the medication safety strategy for the organisation. Key to your role will be managing medication incident reporting across the organisation, and improving the reporting and shared learning from these. In addition you will provide support for medicines related regulatory & compliance requirements, and lead on the strategic development and delivery of clinical pharmacy services to designated areas.

You must have initiative, be forward thinking and have the ability to influence and work in close collaboration with a wide range of health care professionals. You will be expected to participate in MSO networks, both national and local, and contribute to service development.

You will be GPhC registered pharmacist with extensive post registration experience in hospital pharmacy and/ or mental health services.

This is an exciting time to join the Trust with many developments and opportunities. We offer a supportive and friendly environment and we have a genuine and active commitment to staff wellbeing, education and career development.
