Job Description

United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust was formed in April 2000 by the merger of the three former acute hospital trusts in Lincolnshire. It provides acute hospital services to the people of Lincolnshire from District General Hospitals at Lincoln (CountyHospital) and Boston (PilgrimHospital) and from hospitals in Grantham, Louth, Skegness and Spalding. It employs approximately 7,000 staff and in the previous year has treated 175,000 accident and emergency patients, nearly half a million outpatients and almost 100,000 inpatients.

The United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust has established strong partnership with the regional NHS Trusts and Universities and has been successful in establishing and hosting East Midlands Clinical Research Network (EM CRN) staff and supporting clinical research for many specialities (i.e. Cardiology, Stroke, Cancer, Diabetes, Medicines for Children, and dementia and Neurodegenerative diseases). The Trust is receiving over £14 million funding to support commercial and non-commercial clinical trials.

Lincolnshire Clinical Research Facility (LCRF) was established in May 2005 in the R & D Department to promote and support clinical trials. Over the past five years the LCRF have had several successful achievements including finalist and highly commended status in the prestigious National Health Service Journal Awards and National Patient Experience Network awards. LCRF Clinical Trials Pharmacy Team were runners up in the Significant Contribution of Services Supporting Research category


The successful applicant will be expected to work on a variety of clinical trials, alongside consultants and clinical research staff at Lincoln County Hospital. This role will require an enthusiastic and motivated individual with excellent organisational, communication and effective time management skills, the ability to work on their own initiative.
