The Royal Marsden NHS Trust is seeking to appoint an experienced, enthusiastic and dedicated individual for the post of Managing Director and Superintendent Pharmacist at our newly formed Pharmacy Outpatient Service ‘RM Medicines’.

RM Medicines has been set up by the Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust, as a separate entity to provide outpatient pharmacy services, focussed on ensuring efficient and safe supply of medicines to their patients.   The Royal Marsden is a specialist cancer hospital and together with its principal academic partner, the Institute of Cancer Research they are ranked in the top five cancer centres in the world for the impact of their research. It is a centre of excellence with an international reputation for ground-breaking research and pioneering the very latest in cancer treatments and technologies, as well as specialising in cancer diagnosis and education.

Forming RM Medicines allows the exciting introduction of significant benefits to our patients, for example, the provision of direct support to ‘care closer to home’ treatments, delivery of oral chemotherapy to patients at home and will provide the platform for a cohesive and responsive pharmacy service across the Royal Marsden.

Our vision is to become a recognised leading provider of pharmaceutical care to patients and hospital staff supporting The Royal Marsden in its mission to continue to make national and global contribution to cancer treatment, so that more people are cured and quality of life is improved for those living with cancer.

The post holder will lead the outpatient pharmacy team as Superintendent Pharmacist and will play a central role in developing the newly formed business. A suitable candidate will be expected to demonstrate behaviours that promote RM Medicines and the Royal Marsden’s’ values by demonstrating commitment to the delivery of respectful and compassionate care.

This is a great opportunity for an experienced pharmacist who is passionate about improving the lives of patients with cancer and keen to work with the Royal Marsden Team, to ensure patients’ have the best experience.

The Royal Marsden operates from two sites, in Chelsea and Sutton, and we also have a Satellite Day Care Unit at Kingston Hospital.
