The critical care unit is currently expanding and is one of the largest in Wales, with this expansion comes the exciting opportunity to grow the pharmacy intensive care team. The post holder will work closely with members of the multi-disciplinary team delivering high quality pharmaceutical care to the critical care unit. The job will be mainly ward-based, providing and supervising a range of medicines management services to patients from the time of their admission through to their discharge. Support and mentoring will be provided to the successful candidate to ensure that you fulfil your potential in this exciting and challenging role. The post holder will work closely with pharmacy colleagues, clinicians, nursing staff and other members of the multi-disciplinary team delivering high quality pharmaceutical care to critical care patients. A major component will be the proactive provision of timely, evidence-based advice to prescribers to influence prescribing decisions and behaviours and so positively enhance patient care and promote cost-effective use of medicines. The post holder will participate in dispensary duties and provide clinical leadership to junior pharmacists and trainees. The advent of the new HEPMA system will allow for exciting development in electronic prescribing for all our patients and will require pharmacy input to support the launch and development.
