This new post offers the opportunity to work as a senior member of an established pharmacy cancer services team in the Edinburgh Cancer Centre (ECC). The ECC provides specialist cancer services for the South East of Scotland Cancer Network (SCAN) treating patients with solid tumours and haematological malignancies in day-case OPD and in-patient settings. It is a specialist tertiary referral centre for a number of rarer cancers and has a teenage and young adult unit.

You will work closely with senior colleagues to provide professional leadership for delivery of cancer haematology services to adult patients attending the ECC. You will be a key member of multi-disciplinary groups within the ECC and work closely with the MDT to improve and maintain delivery of the pharmacy service within your specialist area. The haematology service in the ECC is about to embark on a major project which will deliver upgraded facilities for patients and the transformation in the way that treatment is delivered to patients with the majority of parenteral SACT delivery moving to day-case ambulatory care. You will be integral to the delivery of this project redesigning SACT pathways and protocols alongside the MDT and current haematology specialist pharmacists working within the team.

The initial clinical pharmacy service you will be involved in delivering will be to in-patient haematology wards however once the project has concluded the remit of the team will include both haematology in-patients and day-case delivery via the new unit.

Preferred days of work will be either: Mon Tues and Fri or Thurs Fri and Mon. You will participate in WGH weekend and extended hours rota's on a pro-rata basis and the ECC pharmacy service public holiday rota covering the Christmas and New Year public holidays.
