About The Role

Have you thought about working within prison healthcare?
Prisons are one of the most challenging, yet rewarding places for healthcare professionals to work - if you’re looking for a role where you can develop your existing skills and learn something new every day in an environment that never stands still, then this is it!

You will be required to support the delivery of Pharmacy Services which will be part be of a comprehensive healthcare package offered within HMP Lewes. Working within the on-site dispensary and on the prison wings, you can expect to be involved in everything from the dispensing process, medicines management, administering medications, patient counselling and medicines reconciliation etc. 

About You

You will hold NVQ Level 3, BTEC, or equivalent qualifications and have current registration with the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC). You will also have relevant post-qualification experience working within a pharmacy environment and multi-disciplinary team.

On-site training will be provided during your induction process to support your undertaking of the operational tasks involved with the prison, but you should be able to demonstrate a good level of competence and experience in the dispensary environment.

You’ll be able to demonstrate the ability to use your own initiative and have sound patient counselling skills, treating patients with respect and dignity at all times, adopting a culturally sensitive approach.

If you are self-motivated and able to work autonomously as well as demonstrate good problem solving skills, then this could be the right role for you!

How will we support you?
