Job Opportunities

The pharmacy department encourages trainee pharmacists to remain after registration and a significant number have stayed with the Trust after completing their training year.


The foundation training year is viewed as the start of a three-year training programme, with pharmacists progressing to the clinical diploma.  Pharmacists are encouraged to explore their interests with further training.


Completing your training in a department that offers a wide range of specialities gives you a broad background of clinical knowledge which will allow you to progress in many different directions in your future career.

We usually offer non-paid work experience placements each summer to 3rd year pharmacy undergraduates.  These provide the opportunity to experience working in a hospital environment and to discuss the training year with current trainee pharmacists.

The 2022 summer work experience placements have now concluded.  Details of 2023 summer placements will be available in October 2022.
