The University of Wolverhampton is now established as an accredited MPharm provider and will be sending out its third cohort of pharmacy graduates this summer.
An opportunity has arisen for a dynamic and highly motivated clinical pharmacist to join us.

In addition you will be seconded one day per week to the Walsall Hospitals NHS Trust in order to fulfil a clinical practice role where you will also play a key part in driving their pharmacy department’s research and development initiative.
You will possess a high level of knowledge of the various issues involving hospital pharmacy and have significant practice experience (at least 2-3 years post registration).

A postgraduate diploma in clinical practice (or equivalent) is essential.
