Job overview

This Clinical Fellow position at ST3+ level will contribute to development and delivery of Clinical Pharmacology services in the Trust.

This is an exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic doctor to join one of the UK’s largest teams of NHS Clinical Pharmacologists working in collaboration with Pharmacy to develop and deliver new services for patients with polypharmacy and multimorbidity, and in pharmacogenomics, as well as contributing to medicines management, prescribing education and clinical research. The appointee will work with 7 consultants and 4 other trainees and alongside a dynamic pharmacy team.

Main duties of the job

The postholder will contribute to the non-acute medical registrar rota (1:11, no nights, which includes acute take and ward cover out of hours)
