About Us

The UEA Programme Delivery Team (PDT) operates within defined Terms of Reference and is accountable to both Health Education England (HEE) and the UEA School of Pharmacy Teaching Committee.

We also submit regular reports to the UEA Pre-registration Programmes Stakeholder Advisory Group (PSAG) who are invited to make recommendations for improvements. The PSAG membership includes chief pharmacists, pharmacy education and training leads and trainee representatives.

For all enquiries contact Maria Christou (Programme Director) email: m.christou@uea.ac.uk     Tel: 01603593080

Team members work in close partnership with the East of England Pre-reg Managers Group who manage training at the hospital sites employing the trainee pharmacists.
