Job Details

The UHB is implementing an electronic Prescribing and Medicines Administration (ePMA) digital system in all secondary care areas. This will require a transition from paper medication charts to digital charts in the biggest digital transformation to date within the UHB. The ePMA system will transform the way in which clinical staff prescribe and administer medication which will reduce errors, therefore reducing harm to our patients.

This is an exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic and motivated nurse with a passion for improving patient safety through the use of a digital system.
