About The Role

I help to make a difference!
Are you collaborative and compassionate?

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, then this is the place to be.

What do we need from you so you can do the job?
You will be required to support the delivery of Pharmacy Services which will be part be of a comprehensive healthcare package, based on the prison service’s needs. Working on the prison wings, you can expect to be involved in everything from medicine management, dispense medications, screening drug charts, patient counseling, etc.

You may be required to accept certain activities concerning the day-to-day operational management of their unit and as such must ensure that they are trained and competent to take on these additional responsibilities. As a Pharmacy Technician, you may also be required to take on the role of working across multiple Pharmacy Services if and when required.

About You

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

You’ll be able to demonstrate assessment skills, including the undertaking of risk assessments and have sound patient counselling skills, treating patients with respect and dignity at all times, adopting a culturally sensitive approach.

As a Pharmacy Technician, you may be required to take on a role of working across multiple Pharmacy Services if and when required.

If you are self-motivated and able to work autonomously as well as showing plenty of initiative when it comes to handling a wide range of situations, then this could be the right role for you!
