These 2 new Pharmacy Assistant posts will be based in Torfaen CRT in County Hospital, Griffithstown and Caerphilly CRT in Hengoed.

The team currently provide a Pharmacy service to Frailty Consultant led 'hospital at home' patients, Therapies/Social Care-led Reablement patients, Nurse-led home parenteral service patients (including IV antimicrobials) and Community Falls patients.

We also take referrals from acute ward Pharmacy staff to ensure that frail/vulnerable patients are supported in taking medicines post discharge. Our role involves regular MDT meetings, home visits, virtual ward rounds and data collection and analysis of contributions to patient care. Each day brings a new challenge, the chance to learn from those around us, job satisfaction and an opportunity to further develop the service!

The new funding will lead to the exciting integration and redesign of the Pharmacy service provided to the community hospital rehabilitation wards of South Monmouthshire and Torfaen.

With a unique role working across the primary/secondary care interface, you will build excellent relationships with community, practice based and hospital colleagues.
