    Re: Pay in hospital sector

    [email protected] would be the word to use. Band 6 starts off at about £23,000 pa. I also get an on-call payment of £2400 per year. With deductions for tax, NI, student loan and car parking, my take-home pay is about £1500 per month. However, although hospital pay starts low, it has the potential to go quite high.
    Band6 is a Band 6 no longer.. now 7/8a

      community pharmacy is becoming more clinically orientated, MURs, minor ailments services, anti-coag clinics, etc...

      im sure there are people thinking up what else they cn get out of community pharmacy for free, by using the pharmacist's clinical training

      Even now there must be some pharmacies so advanced that the pharmacist doesnt have any involvement with the dispensing process except for clinical checks and is busy doing other enhanced/advanced services.

      check links below for actual pay: that is what you actually get:

      Pay for different bands, pre-reg is bottom of band 5 (<£20,000), once qualified=band 6, and one moves up from there.

      Band levels of different pharmacist positions etc...(you can compare you pay against other jobs in the hospital aswell)

        How often do you move up in bands though?

          You move bands when you move job. It is not the person who is banded, its the job.

              Depends how available jobs are, if you have done a clinical certificate/diploma, if you are classed as a clinical pharmacist, etc

                Sometimes a job will be classed as a band 6/7, so you move up when you are more experienced and can do more within the job. Sort of like the old STEP programmes.
