James Fitzpatrick

Chesterfield Royal Hospital Teacher Practitioner,



I registered as a pharmacist in 2011, having graduated with a 2:1 MPharm degree from the University of Nottingham in 2010.

I undertook my pre-registration training with the Royal Derby Hospital NHS Foundation trust and continued at the trust as a Shift Working Pharmacist after qualifying. I completed a clinical pharmacy diploma with De Montford University in 2014.

In 2014, I moved to Oxford Universtity Hospitals NHS Trust to take up a post as a Senior Clinical Cancer Pharmacist. As part of this role I underwent the GCP training, enabling me to work on clinical trials.

In 2015 I repatriated to the Midlands and started a job as a Senior Clinical Pharmacist at Chesterfield Royal Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. I completed the Independent and Supplementary Prescribing for Pharmacists course with the University of Leeds in 2016, and am registered with the General Pharmaceutical Council as an Independent Prescriber.

In 2016, I took up my current post of Education and Training Lead Pharmacist at Chesterfield Royal Hospital. This role involves working at the hospital Mondays through Wednesday, overseeing and leading on the education and training provided by the pharmacy department to the hospital and other stakeholders. On Thursdays and Fridays I work at the University of Nottingham teaching on the MPharm course.
