Here at Southend University Hospital we strive to provide high quality care for every patient, every time.

We would be nothing without our staff. So it goes without saying that when it comes to recruiting new team members, we're looking for the best. We encourage staff to be innovative, to challenge the 'as is' and to always put patients first.

We want staff who will live our trust values every day.

Care with compassion, Working together, Professional and accountable

Three mid and south east Essex Acute trusts are operating within a rapidly changing, challenging, but very exciting time of whole system reformation. The Trusts are in partnership as a fast developing hospital network currently comprising of Southend University Hospital NHS FT, Basildon and Thurrock University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and Mid Essex Hospital NHS Trust (the msb Group). Over the next few years, through working together, they will define the future of care for the population of mid and south Essex.

As part of this acute trust collaboration we are redesigning our hospitals to ensure we meet rising demand with the best quality services. The Pharmacy Department is at the forefront of our service redesign and one of the first departments within the msb Group to offer the opportunities for developing standardised systems across the three hospitals, re-designing new and ongoing services as the clinical configuration changes in line with the Carter Report. This is all being led by a new chief pharmacist working in partnership across the group.

Southend University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (SUHFT) has recognised the essential role of clinical pharmacy with significant investment in the urgent and emergency care pathways, supporting Trust-wide transformation of its services.

SUHFT is the first in Essex to implement electronic prescribing, using the JAC system, and we are at the forefront of developing and enhancing this system within the NHS. With excellent communication skills, you will play a role in ensuring the hospital derives maximum benefit from e-Prescribing and the opportunities it provides to deliver true medicines optimisation.

Do you wish to gain or develop your experience within the Hospital Pharmacy setting?

Can you adapt quickly to new working environments?

If so, we want you to support our innovative and enthusiastic team of Clinical Pharmacists.

Supported by our excellent pharmacy team, the post-holder will enjoy a role working to deliver ward-based pharmacy services. The majority of your day will be spent in your designated ward areas working with the multidisciplinary team. You will rotate through various medical and surgical specialties and specialist technical services alongside some dispensary support.

The role will involve working 1 day in every 4 weekends, a weekly late shift, and the rest of the week from 9am - 5.10pm, to enable a good work-life balance.

Southend-On-Sea is an exciting place to live, work and enjoy life. Just under an hour from London and Europe (either by rail or air), Southend and the surrounding area is vibrant and cosmopolitan. Local schools have an excellent reputation and the nearby seaside provides a pleasant backdrop as well as opportunities for fun and relaxation. The attractive nearby town of Leigh-On-Sea provides an alternative location for many professionals to settle and wind down after work.
