Question: 
How are you preparing for the second half of your pre-reg placement?

Community Sector Is Hopeless, Primary care pharmacist

Next step is to try your very best NOT to get into community sector after qualifying! That's exactly what I said to my last student doing placement in a multiple!

Precisely! Go back to uni to do another degree or a PhD. Get your registration number and go and do something other than community pharmacy unless you want a life of pure misery.
