Recently we have had lots to be proud of: 

  • Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust is an integral member of the Buckinghamshire Integrated Care System (ICS) providing both acute and community services, This status was announced in July 2017 and places the Buckinghamshire ICS in the forefront working with NHS England to help lead the way in developing ICS systems and new models of care.
  • We have been ranked as one of the UK's top hospitals by health intelligence specialists CHKS. This award is based on the evaluation of over 20 key performance indicators covering safety, clinical effectiveness, health outcomes, efficiency, patient experience and quality of care.
  • Our Stroke Unit has maintained the ‘A grade’ in the latest Royal College of Physicians’ Sentinel Stroke National Audit Programme (SSNAP) audit.

As an integrated Trust we provide acute, community and palliative care. We do this from our patients homes, from one of our five community hospitals, and from two acute hospitals at Stoke Mandeville and Wycombe.

We are committed to providing staff with learning and development opportunities to support their career progression. We also offer on-site subsidised childcare, flexible working and a generous pension.

An exciting opportunity has arisen to join our band 6 rotational pharmacist programme.

Our excellent rotational pharmacist scheme offers experience in pharmacy practice in ward pharmacy, dispensary and dispensary management, aseptic dispensing and medicines information.

We offer a varied programme with ward based experience suited to your rotation in areas such as emergency and elective surgery, emergency medicine, specialist medicine, medicine for older people, paediatrics and our cardiovascular team. Each rotation is specifically designed to provide you with a broad range of experiences in all of these areas and will provide the platform of general level skills on which to take forward your career.

Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust provides services in many specialities, including the National Spinal Injuries Centre, rheumatology, burns unit, ophthalmology and a newly developed stroke unit. The Trust is one of the few in the country to provide Integrated Acute and Community Services.

You will work alongside experienced specialist and advanced pharmacists and be supported through the Joint Programme Board Diploma in General Pharmacy Practice by our Academic Unit. 

This vacancy would be ideal for pharmacists wishing to start or move into a career in hospital pharmacy.

From 6 April 2017, Tier 2 skilled worker applicants, applying for entry clearance into the UK, must present a criminal record certificate from each country they have resided continuously or cumulatively for 12 months or more in the past 10 years. Adult dependants (over 18 years old) will also be subject to this requirement. Guidance can be found here Criminal Records Checks for Overseas Applicants.
