This is an exciting opportunity to join one of the largest and most successful Foundation Trusts in the UK with an international reputation and a tradition of innovation.

Based in the busy West End of London, we have a lively and vibrant working atmosphere, with quick and easy transport links to all our sites. Our size and resources enable us to offer a range of attractive benefits as well as unparalleled education and development opportunities for staff at all levels. This includes an extensive portfolio of academic and clinical courses and programmes ranging from ongoing personal development through to clinical excellence and leadership skills.

UCLH provides HIV and GUM services for inpatients on a dedicated Infectious Diseases ward, and for outpatients at the Mortimer Market Centre, which is part of Central and North West London NHS Foundation Trust. The Mortimer Market Centre is one of the largest HIV clinics in the UK, with a cohort of over 4,800 HIV-infected patients in London and over 800 patients in Surrey.


The Infectious Diseases service is provided within the Hospital for Tropical Diseases, which is part of UCLH, and provides a service to long and short term travellers, immigrants and refugee populations. It also provides the clinical infectious disease service for UCLH and houses the National Network for Travel Medicine. It provides a national tertiary referral service for many travel-related infections.


We have an exciting opportunity for a dynamic, innovative and enthusiastic individual to join our clinical pharmacy team providing a service to the HIV, GUM and Infectious Diseases services, within the Infection Division at UCLH.

Additional responsibilities will include governance, medicines expenditure analysis and reporting, expansion of the HIV homecare service, multi-professional education and training, service evaluation, and other strategic projects as required. This will include initiatives to minimise medicines-related risk, meet the educational needs of patients and staff, and improve overall quality across the service. You will also help to provide an efficient service to the outpatients attending our busy satellite pharmacy in the Mortimer Market Centre.


You should have a Diploma or Master’s degree in Clinical or General Pharmacy Practice (or be able to demonstrate equivalent knowledge and skills), alongside a broad base of clinical experience, ideally including specialist practice within HIV and infectious diseases, and general medicine.
