Foundation training

We offer 4 placements.

The welcoming and friendly pharmacy team is keen to support the progression of foundation trainees through their placement programme. The department also has a committed Training and Development Team to ensure that a well structured, comprehensive training programme is devised for the needs of the trainee. As a result, the department tends to have excellent foundation trainee retention rates.

We offer a comprehensive and diverse training programme which incorporates rotations both within and external to the Trust. Trainees will gain experience in the following areas:
- Inpatient and Outpatient Dispensary
- Medicine, including Acute Medicine
- Surgery
- Paediatrics/Neonatal Care
- Cardiology
- Critical Care
- Haematology/Oncology
- Procurement/Medicines Management
- Manufacturing
- Medicines Information
- Mental Health Unit
- Primary Care Trust (PCT)
- Cross Sector - Community Pharmacy Placement

Clinical ward assessments and regular tutorials, clinical workshops and sample paper sessions form part of the training programme to ensure the trainee experiences a well structured placement. Tutors meet regularly with their trainees to provide guidance and assistance according to the needs of the individual. Comprehensive regional study weeks co-ordinated by the NHS Pharmacy Practice Unit (University of East Anglia) help underpin our in-house programme. The programme is adapted continually to ensure the trainee achieves the standards stipulated by the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC) and meets the professional milestones required by the Trust.

We offer a dynamic, innovative and stimulating working environment. With modern equipment and a tailored approach to role development, you have the opportunity to challenge your personal abilities, realise your potential and be rewarded for your efforts.

Our dedicated members of staff are essential in providing excellent patient care and contributing to the strategic aims of the trust. Our values for our staff therefore include:

·     To create an atmosphere which is caring, friendly, and sensitive to each individual.
·     Recognise merit, celebrate success and achievement.
·     Respect people’s dignity and treat them with fairness, consistency and honesty.
·     Work together as a team, supporting and encouraging all members.
·     Acknowledge people’s desire for job satisfaction, growth and creativity in their work.

We look forward to welcoming you to our Trust.

About the Hospital

North West Anglia NHS FT (NWAngliaFT) formed on 1st April 2017.
NWAngliaFT is a newly initiated and merged Trust formed in April 2017. The merge stems from existing Peterborough and Stamford Hospitals NHS Foundation and Hinchingbrooke Healthcare NHS Trusts.  It serves a diverse and growing population of 700,000 people, with around 6,000 staff. The Trust has three hospital sites in Peterborough, Huntingdon and Stamford.

Peterborough City Hospital
Peterborough City Hospital was built in 2010 and has 623 beds. The new building brought improved services and facilities to the city – including a state-of-the-art Radiotherapy Unit, an Emergency Centre with a separate children’s emergency department, a dedicated Women and Children’s unit, an expanded Cardiac Unit, alongside a new respiratory investigations facility. Peterborough City Hospital, opened in 2010, is a vibrant, modern environment in which to work and now, as a larger Trust, we offer an exciting expansion of opportunities to new applicants across three hospitals.

We are a busy Trust and continuously strive to ensure our patients receive the right care, first time, every time.

As for living in the area, there is a wealth of choice with city living, small towns and villages all within reasonable commute to the hospitals. There are excellent schools, and a wealth of social and leisure activities to choose from.  

So, if you are looking to develop your career and want to do so in an environment which is challenging and growing we would encourage you to look further into a future with NWAngliaFT.
