Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust (MFT) is one of the largest acute Trusts in the UK, employing over 20,000 staff.

We are responsible for running a family of nine hospitals across six separate sites, providing a wide range of services from comprehensive local general hospital care through to highly specialised regional and national services.

We are the main provider of hospital care to approximately 750,000 people in Manchester and Trafford and the single biggest provider of specialised services in the North West of England. We are also the lead provider for a significant number of specialised services including Breast Care, Vascular, Cardiac, Respiratory, Urology Cancer, Paediatrics, Women’s Services, Ophthalmology and Genomic Medicine.

Our vision is to improve the health and quality of life of our diverse population by building an organisation that:

  • Excels in quality, safety, patient experience, research, innovation and teaching
  • Attracts, develops and retains great people
  • Is recognised internationally as a leading healthcare provider

Last year Wythenshawe hospital joined 6 other teaching, specialist and district general hospitals to become Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust (MFT). As one of the largest trusts in the UK, our new organisation will provide a single hospital service across the city of Manchester. These changes will make a real difference to the health outcomes and quality of life for the people of Manchester. That’s why this really is an extremely exciting and challenging period in the delivery of health and social care in Greater Manchester and one that provides a wealth of career opportunities for great people right across our Group.

An excellent opportunity has arisen for a dedicated, dynamic and enthusiastic pharmacist to join the pharmacy team within the Wythenshawe, Trafford, Withington and Altrincham group (WTWA).

The post will form part of one of our ward based teams with technical staff, allocated to a particular directorate. This is a rotational position with the post holder rotating through different specialties annually and includes rotations to Trafford hospital and MFT Community Services.

  • Urgent Care (including emergency department and acute medical unit)

  • Pulmonary Oncology
