Pharmacists…. do you want to develop your clinical skills in a new and exciting role, then training to becoming an Advanced Pharmacist Practitioner could be the next step in your career?

This is an exciting opportunity to gain experience as a clinical cancer pharmacist whilst also studying modules in Advanced Clinical Practice (ACP), including physical assessment and clinical decision making along with leadership and research. There will be the opportunity to undertake the non-medical prescribing qualification if not already achieved. Upon successful completion of the training programme and demonstration of suitable leadership skills and the ability to autonomously manage patients you will progress to AFC Band 8a.

Once you have completed your training and developed your skills you will assess and prescribe treatment for patients within your care with support from other advanced pharmacists and medics. You will work closely with a multidisciplinary team within the cancer centre delivering chemotherapy outpatient prescribing clinics and supporting the chemotherapy day unit and cancer assessment unit.

At the Castle Hill Hospital site, the Oncology and Haematology Centre provides specialised care to 1.2 million patients from across the region. As well as spending a proportion of time undertaking the traditional pharmacy roles within the cancer centre such as providing a clinical pharmacy service to allocated wards, you will also start to incorporate advanced practice into your daily duties, including using your clinical assessment skills to triage and treat patients with chemotherapy related side effects and working closely with the medical team. You will work towards prescribing within the outpatient and inpatient setting becoming a fully integrated member of the multi dispensary team.

The pharmacy team is ambitious and motivated, focusing our work around the best interests of our patients and continually striving to improve the services we offer. Hull University Teaching Hospitals is a supportive environment; pharmacists have access to senior mentors who can support them in their clinical role. The pharmacy department supports regular supervision in practice to ensure that pharmacists can develop their clinical skills and work to their full potential. 

Named the City of Culture for 2017, Kingston-upon-Hull has more to offer than first meets the eye. Not only does the city boast two Super league rugby teams, but the Championship football team of Hull City AFC also resides here. As well as excellent shopping facilities, the city centre has exceptional transport links all over Yorkshire, including trains to the nearby cities of Leeds and York. Located less than an hours’ drive to the seaside town of Bridlington, Hull is also conveniently placed to the Humber Bridge, the gateway to Lincolnshire and beyond!

Hull & East Yorkshire Hospitals has benefitted from increased funding allowing for the development of new Emergency Care facilities for both adults and children, as well as the renovation of the main tower block at the Hull Royal Infirmary site. There is also a new cardiac and elective surgery facility which provides specialist cardiothoracic care to patients from across Yorkshire.

We strongly recommend applicants make contact prior to application.

This role includes weekend and bank holiday working, and includes participation in the on call service. You must be a registered pharmacist with the GPhC and hold a pharmacy degree or equivalent and be able to demonstrate evidence of your Continued Professional Development (CPD).
