Clinical Effectiveness Pharmacist Band 7 based in Chelmsford (part-time position)
We need an enthusiastic and innovative pharmacist who wants to get their teeth into developing new and better ways of delivering medicines information effectively and further develop our R&D capabilities. We are actively involved in several clinical trials. You would be working at the pharmacy as part of a small but dedicated team. There will be the opportunity to cover wards or clinics.

You will be working with staff who are permanently based in the pharmacy and with clinical pharmacy staff based on the wards and units. Hours/days are flexible, between 9am and 5pm on weekdays, and paid on-call.

The post-holder will be responsible for managing a medicines information service for the Trust and for developing medicines research and development systems and standards to enable the Trust to participate more fully in clinical trials and local research projects.

An important and valued part of the job role involves informing relevant Trust staff on drug alerts and co-ordinating the medicines optimisation policy reviews with the Pharmacy Manager.


Do you want to return to MH nursing? NEP offers a three month part-time course (including placement as a student nurse). Upon completion of a successful assessment, you’ll be a registered nurse again. New sessions are every quarter. You’ll receive £500 to help cover training and living costs.

If you’re interested, please email Nazir Shivji on or call him on 07770 815438.
