The successful candidates will provide high-quality clinical pharmacy services as members of our ward-based teams.

Our Trust gives medicines management and medicines optimisation high priority. We have invested in a purpose-built, state of the art, aseptic unit. The pharmacy department has been successful in outsourcing outpatient dispensing, implementing electronic medicines management for all inpatient wards and rolled out electronic prescribing in our haematology and oncology service. Our department is also in the country to have worked with external stakeholders to develop community infusion clinics. We also led on the introduction of unique electronic locking systems for medicine cupboards which releases significant nursing time and improves medicines security. Our next major objectives are to implement electronic prescribing for all our inpatient and outpatient ward areas. We’re a large organisation with three hospitals located in Scunthorpe, Grimsby and Goole. We also provide community services in North Lincolnshire. Our 6,500 members of staff care for and support a population of more than 400,000 people.
