At South West London and St George’s Mental Health NHS Trust our mission is “making life better together”.

Are you a pharmacy technician looking for a new challenge?

You will have the opportunity to work within a pharmacy team leading the country in terms of the use of technology and mental health pharmacy practice. You will be part of a dynamic multidisciplinary team working together to deliver a comprehensive medicines optimisation service whilst tackling health inequalities and the highest risk areas of medicines use.

This highly patient-facing role requires you work as a part of a team as well as independently and have both excellent communication and time management skills. You will be actively encouraged to contribute towards on-going service development.

For those candidates who do not meet the essential criteria, including ACPT and a qualification in medicines management; comprehensive training will be provided to enable you to undertake your new role. Applications will therefore be welcomed from pharmacy technicians currently working in the community and those who do not currently have medicines optimisation experience.

Upon successful completion of both ACPT and a recognised qualification in medicines management; for which the candidate will have 12 months to complete; the post will be upgraded from a band 4 to a band 5. If you have these qualifications already you will be recruited as a Band 5.
