A leading hospital outpatient pharmacy has a fantastic opportunity for a Pharmacist with considerable management experience to join them as their Superintendent Pharmacist.

Serving one of the largest patient populations in the UK, the pharmacy plays a crucial part in outpatient care and supports patients with diverse healthcare needs across every clinical area – whether they are a recent attendee of A&E, a discharged inpatient continuing treatment at home, or need specialist support to manage a chronic and progressive condition.

As Superintendent Pharmacist, you will ensure all outpatient pharmacy services function optimally at a safety, compliance, and business level, which will include strategic service development. Through expert team and resource management, you will ensure that the pharmacy continues to provide a positive experience for all hospital staff, patients, and visitors.

This role would best suit an experienced Pharmacist with strong leaderships skills, who can be both assertive and resilient when finding solutions and effecting change. The outpatient pharmacy is a dynamic, fast-paced environment and we’re ideally looking for someone similarly adaptable; your success will be rewarded with a performance-based bonus scheme, offering up to an additional 10% of your salary.

While a hospital outpatients background would be ideal, Pharmacists who have managed comparable high-volume pharmacy services will be considered and are encouraged to apply.

This is a permanent, full-time (40h) role for a Superintendent Pharmacist.
