The trust is hosting an open day on Saturday, May 19 in its education centre from 10am to 2pm.

Vacancies are available for people with no previous experience, as well as more advanced roles for those looking to step up in their career.

Visitors to the open day will be able to find out about how the hospital pharmacy operates, meet staff in various pharmaceutical roles, and go on a behind-the-scenes tour, including seeing the pharmacy ‘robot’ and a demonstration of the trust’s cutting edge electronic prescribing services.

David Sapsford, deputy chief pharmacist at West Suffolk Hospital, said: “Our team is committed to providing a round-the-clock service for our patients, who are at the centre of everything we do.

“One of the best things about being part of our hospital pharmacy team is that you get to work with a vast cross-section of teams and disciplines from across the trust.

“There are excellent career progression opportunities available, and a friendly and supportive work environment.”
