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.
