Pre-registration training

We offer two pre-registration training, full-time placements, alongside an MPharm with placement programme operated by University of East Anglia (UEA). Both are supported by highly skilled pre-reg tutors throughout the year.

Our trainees are valued members of our team and will have the opportunity to gain experience in the following specialist areas:
•    Inpatient facilities in Norfolk and Suffolk 
•    Crisis resolution and home treatment
•    Psychiatric intensive care unit
•    Older people and dementia
•    Forensic services
•    Drugs and alcohol
•    Wellbeing services
•    Medicine information (Psychiatry)


The programme consists of two placements: six months based in Norwich at our Hellesdon Hospital site and six months based in Ipswich at our St Clements site, with a change in base during the 27th week.

During your placements  you will:
•    Achieve all dispensary competencies  within our  mental health trust
•    Work alongside our specialist clinical pharmacists participating in the multidisciplinary teams on the wards
•    Support and deliver  medicines management and  clinical services to service users and staff
•    Complete your cross sector placements, a four-week community pharmacy placement and a two-week acute hospital placement

Trainees are also expected to attend a number of residential study sessions as part of the regional East of England training programme provided through the UEA.

We hope you will apply to our highly motivated and clinical pharmacy team and we look forward to welcoming you to Norfolk and Suffolk.
