Making the transition from classroom to frontline practice is a big step for trainee pharmacists. But the best students make it look effortless, as they turn the theoretical knowledge gained at university into the practical application of patient care. The winner of this award won’t be your average trainee; they will have set themselves apart from their peer group with their drive, ingenuity, ideas and commitment to make a difference to their community.

Tell us what you have done and why, how you did it, and what you have learned from the experiences that will help you in your future career.




Anyone who was on a training placement or was on the provisional register working in a community pharmacy from August 2021 to August 2022. This can include both those who began their placement in 2020 and completed it in 2021, and those who began their placement in 2021 and are due to complete it in 2022. Either way, the majority of the work referred to in your entry must have taken place during 2021 and in the community component of your work.
