The Pharmacy department

Our friendly, 150 strong team is a core part of the overall hospital structure and within clinical teams, providing support to all areas across the hospital.

Working alongside experienced pharmacists in a diverse and stimulating environment, you will be given many opportunities to apply knowledge in practice, developing a solid grounding, with focus on clinical pharmacy.

We use robotic dispensing, manufacture chemotherapy and are building independent pharmacist prescribing capacity to respond dynamically to the needs of our patients.
