This post will support the Unscheduled Care Divisional (USC) Pharmacist for ensuring delivery of the cost savings agenda throughout USC. The applicant will work in collaboration with the USC Divisional Pharmacist to lead, develop and improve care for people with chronic conditions across the Health Board.

Long Term Conditions (LTCs), also referred to as chronic conditions, encompass a broad range of conditions, which are usually lifelong and cannot currently be cured. These conditions are placing significant demands on the NHS and other public services. Medicines are the most common intervention in the management of these conditions. Patients should benefit from greater access to the clinical expertise of pharmacists, as part of multidisciplinary approaches to care. As the experts in medicines, pharmacists can ensure people get the best outcomes from their medicines, reduce adverse events, minimise avoidable harm and unplanned admissions to hospital, while ensuring resources are used more efficiently to deliver the standard and level of care that individuals deserve.

The applicant must demonstrate a broad-based clinical knowledge and have evidence of excellent communication skills. Essential attributes for this post include experience of managing a team of pharmacists and the ability to inspire and motivate a team. The post holder must be able to make decisions under pressure, be self-motivated and innovative.

This is an exciting opportunity for an existing 8a working within ABUHB to join our busy forward thinking department.

This is for internal applicants only – please apply on TRAC when vacancy is live.

The ability to speak Welsh is desirable for this post.
