Job Opportunities

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


The pre-registration year is viewed as the foundation year 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.

Work experience

The pharmacy department offers several 1-week non-paid summer work experience placements to 3rd year undergraduates each year.  These provide the opportunity to experience working in a hospital environment and to discuss the training year with current pre-registration pharmacists and tutors.

For more information about the 2020 summer placements and how to apply please email  The deadline for application submission is Friday 10th January 2020.
