Pharmacy@QEHB Ltd is a wholly owned subsidiary company of University Hospitals Birmingham, which was established in 2011. We provide a pharmacy service for the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham (QEHB) and Heartlands Hospital, Birmingham.

We currently service both the out-patients and in-patients due to be discharged from QEHB and out-patients at Heartlands. We operate in a manner akin to a community pharmacy with the hospital clinical pharmacy team maintaining oversight and responsibility for the clinical accuracy of prescriptions.

It is essential that the candidates are flexible and have experience in a busy pharmacy environment with high volume dispensing, possess excellent customer service and team leading skills. We welcome applicants from either hospital or community settings.

This is a unique opportunity to support the delivery of the care from our automated pharmacies. We support post-graduate education and the development of staff, therefore this is an ideal opportunity for a pharmacist who may wish to gain secondary care experience to further a clinical pharmacy role in the future.
