About Us

We also submit regular reports to the UEA training 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.

Team members work in close partnership with the East of England Training Managers Group, who manage training at the hospital sites employing the foundation year pharmacists.
