In this role you'll be working within our strong Medicines Management team to help safely supply and administer medicines to patients. You'll also help deliver minor ailments services, serve as a key point of advice to patients in regards to medicines management, help manage the prison's medicine supplies, and help with medicines reconciliation and supporting patients with their prescription pathways.

Through all of this, you'll serve as a vital point of contact for patients in HMP Bristol - you'll empower the prison's population to understand their medicines better and critically manage their own self-care in regards to their long-term health.
