Are you a Pre-Registration Trainee Pharmacy Technician due to qualify and register with the GPhC 2024 or a Pharmacy Technician registered with the GPhC who is looking for a new and varied role?

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Pharmacy Technician to join our friendly and supportive Aseptic team. This is a new post following funding approval in response to the growing Systemic-Anti Cancer Services in NHS Tayside. NHS Tayside hosts one of only thirteen Aseptic Dispensing Units in Scotland. The unit is based at Ninewells Hospital and the main function is to prepare and supply ready to administer patient specific doses of injectable chemotherapy and parenteral nutrition to patients across NHS Tayside.

Applications are welcomed from Pharmacy Technicians and Pre-Registration Trainee Pharmacy Technician due to qualify and register with the GPhC 2024. If the successful applicant does not meet the minimum criteria for a band 5 they will be placed on the band 4 scale and supported through the relevant training to progress to a band 5. The applicant would be expected to complete the PACT (Pharmacy Aseptic Checking Technician) qualification.

Pre-Registration Trainee Pharmacy Technicians and Pharmacy Technicians with no previous aseptic experience will be given the time, training and resources to gain the background knowledge required for this specialist area before moving on to master the art of aseptic technique and the other varied roles included as part of this post.

You will be an active member of the Pharmacy Technician team delivering the aseptic service. You will participate in all areas of the product journey from generation of worksheets and labels, the accurate and safe preparation of aseptic products within clean room facilities through to stock management and contribution to continuous improvements and implementation of developments to meet audit standards.
