Why hospital pharmacy?

Undertaking your pre-registration pharmacist training in a hospital offers significant benefits. You will be working within a large multidisciplinary team which will allow you to experience a wide range of challenges ranging from formulating TPN with the nutrition team to getting involved in the prescribing of perioperative medicines on the Theatre Admissions Unit.
Working within a large and vibrant pharmacy team will allow you to gain experience from pharmacists and technicians working in a wide range of clinical settings. Close links with other hospitals within the East Midlands region and with De Montfort University will provide you with a supportive network.
Working for the National Health Service is rewarding – you will have the opportunity to work with dedicated staff and a diverse range of people. The NHS offers a career structure with salaries that reflect ability and responsibility and benefits such as occupational health and generous holiday entitlement.
Working in a hospital you will have the opportunity to use all of the knowledge that you have gathered at university and use this to improve lives – what could be more rewarding?
