We are looking to recruit a Medication Administration Assistant. This role will be working under the line management of the Residential Manager to oversee the management of medication, whilst being supported by the Lead Medication Administrator. The post holder will have an interest in medicine management systems and processes and will be able to demonstrate accuracy in their work and attention to detail.
You will need a minimum of a Diploma Level 2 and be willing to enrol on a medication management course. We will require flexibility to work during holidays to manage monthly medication cycle processes (100hours).
This role will be responsible for overseeing the ordering and booking in of medication when it arrives from pharmacy or home alongside the Nurse or DP.
You will need to have excellent communication skills as you will be liaising with Pharmacies, GPs, hospital staff, parents and other stake holders.
Auditing and stock control will be part of this role, administering medication to service users will not be an expectation.
