Specialist Pharmacist Acute Medicine, Band 7


A fantastic opportunity has arisen for a pharmacist seeking to develop their specialism within the field of acute medicine. The Acute Admissions Unit (AAU) at Chelsea & Westminster NHS Foundation Trust is a 35 bedded adult assessment unit, with an additional 9 bedded enhanced care area and a 10 bedded assessment area. We admit an average of 35-45 patients per 24 hours with a wide range of acute medical problems. We have a large multidisciplinary team working collaboratively on the unit over extended working hours to provide rapid assessment and senior decision making. We are consistently one of the highest performing trusts in London for urgent emergency care. We provide a fantastic training environment for all healthcare professionals and we are extremely active in QI and research activity.

Key responsibilities of the role include:
• Providing and co-ordinating the clinical pharmacy service to the Acute Admissions Unit (AAU) and the Emergency Dept (ED).

• Actively participate in daily consultant-led Post Take Ward Rounds to promote and support medicines optimisation, antimicrobial stewardship and effective discharge planning.

• Contribute to and potentially lead quality improvement initiatives within the Medicine directorate.

• Involvement in education and training of a variety of healthcare professionals including JBP diploma pharmacists.

The ideal candidate should have a diploma in pharmacy practice or equivalent alongside a broad range of clinical pharmacy experience. Excellent self-motivation, organisational and people skills are essential
