About our Trust

Our Trust is rated as 'Outstanding for Caring' by the CQC - fundamental to this is the way that we value and respect our staff. At every level, we value the diversity of our colleagues and actively champion an inclusive culture. We believe that everyone without exception should feel free to be their authentic self in the workplace.

We understand that work is only one part of life. We are committed to helping our colleagues achieve the best possible work\/life balance. We proudly offer supportive, inclusive and family friendly employment and flexible working policies. We have a wide range of professional services and employee networks to help our colleagues be at their best - and find support if they need it.

Our Trust is already a Disability Confident employer and we are holding ourselves to account through the Workplace Disability Equality Standard (WDES).

For our patients, we do everything we can to deliver fair access to all our services. This includes providing interpretative and other services to meet the needs of disabled communities. We're careful to show sensitivity towards ethnic, cultural and religious differences. Our staff uphold these values and so help our care to get better all the time.

We would welcome applications from band 7s looking to enhance or begin their careers in cancer services.

You will have the opportunity to develop clinical and managerial skills in every facet of pharmaceutical care required to deliver a clinical pharmacy service to oncology patients aged from infant to old age.

Cancer services is a continuously growing area and we have a truly successful cancer services rotation with two of our recent rotational pharmacists being promoted to 8A Advanced Oncology Pharmacists. You would also get to work in Brighton, a vibrant city providing a fantastic work life balance being placed between the sea and the South Downs

The successful candidate, within each rotation, will be presented with an exciting and unique opportunity to work closely as part of a dedicated multi-disciplinary team, with the ability to make a significant contribution to medicines management for all patients within the oncology service as well as play an integral role in the governance frameworks for the unit ranging from procedure and guideline writing to authoring of chemotherapy prescriptions on the Chemocare\u00ae prescribing system.

The successful candidate, within the paediatric rotation, will also play an integral role in managing our paediatric oncology level 3 unit. There will also be the opportunity with the paediatric rotation to experience areas beyond oncology, being trained to deliver care to our tertiary neonatal unit or to general paediatric patients.

We have the infrastructure and support for applicants to continue with the Joint Programme Board Postgraduate Diploma in General Pharmacy Practice and you will be provided with an educational supervisor to complete this post graduate qualification. The post holder will also manage a band 6 pharmacist providing the opportunity to build on managerial skills.
