126 pre-regs to be recruited to NHS England's GP pharmacist scheme
Up to 126 training places have been reserved for pre-registration pharmacists to join NHS England’s “clinical pharmacist” programme, Health Education England has told C+D.
The trainees will be employed by community pharmacies or NHS trusts and will undertake three or six-month placements in general practices across England, HEE explained yesterday (May 8).
Pre-regs will be recruited via HEE’s centralised system – the national pre-registration pharmacist recruitment scheme – with applications opening on June 6, ready for trainees to start their placements in July and August 2019, it added.
Commenting on Twitter, NHS England clinical lead Ravi Sharma said the addition of pre-regs to the national pilot is “very good news”.
