We have a vacancy within our pharmacy group for an enthusiastic and clinically driven pre-registration student starting OCTOBER 2018.
Our pharmacy is a fast-paced and challenging environment, where the diverse patient queries and situations faced throughout the day will provide you with a solid foundation from which to begin a successful career.
We are a team focused on learning and development and are keen to help you understand and thrive in all aspects of community pharmacy, as well as achieve your pre-registration competencies.
We were recently awarded Pharmacy Employer of the Year at a regional level for our dedicated and successful dispensing assistant apprenticeship programme, which further demonstrates our commitment to learning and development in the pharmacy sector.
Our pharmacists themselves come from a range of backgrounds and are all at different stages of their careers. From extensive experience in a variety of pharmacy settings and participation in post-graduate study, each can pass on an in-depth knowledge of medicines that is at the cutting edge of practice. Once a week you will have the opportunity to sit down with your tutor and discuss your progress over the past seven days. This is in addition to bi-monthly performance reviews, which give you the chance to receive constructive feedback, highlighting areas where you are performing strongly but also giving you the opportunity to discuss where you feel you need to focus your learning.
Further benefits of the program include fully-funded face-to-face external training days with PROPHARMACE, designed to reinforce workplace training and get you into the best possible position to pass the registration exam with confidence. You will be involved in the provision of a variety of NHS services including Medicine Use Reviews, New Medicines Services and the Winter Flu Vaccination Programme. There will also be opportunities for wider experiences, with visits to other pharmacies under the same ownership where you can experience further pharmaceutical services such as the NHS Urgent Medicines Supply Advanced Service. In addition to this, you will have the chance to be involved with blood pressure monitoring, measuring for compression hosiery, emergency supply of medicines, Summary Care Record accesses and more.
Over the years we have refined our training program to ensure our students are given the best possible chance of not only passing the exam, but also being able to work confidently as a responsible pharmacist from day one of practice.
So far, we have achieved a 100 % pass and employment rate. We are looking forward to helping the next set of trainees join those ranks, and become competent, confident and employable pharmacists ready to face the challenges of this rapidly expanding area of healthcare.
