The main duties will involve undertaking general aseptic service duties that include assembling and transfering drugs and consumables into the aseptic service clean rooms following standard operating procedures. Participating in documentation creation on software systems. Conducting cleaning of aseptic rooms and associated equipment following standard dispensary operating procedures. Supporting the stock maintenance service, ensuring that sufficient quantities of drugs and consumables are ordered following standard aseptic service and logistic standard operating procedures. Enter environmental monitoring data into the Quality Assurance System software, Q-Pulse.

You must possess excellent communication and organisational skills in order to provide an efficient and safe pharmacy service for patients and the running of the service in a busy environment.
