Pharmaco which prides itself in serving independent community pharmacies and after success of providing Pre-reg training for the last 10 years, we are delighted to announce the launch of the 2017-2018 Pre-registration Training Programme commencing in October 2017.

The study days will be on Saturdays only in Birmingham, which are allocated on a first come first serve basis. Attendance for enrolled trainees is mandatory. Tutors will be promptly notified of any absenteeism.

With the success of running a tutor workshop last year we are once again going to extend this programme which will include an evening Tutor Training session. Also included to enhance their confidence, an additional study day which will allow the trainees to sit a full-length mock registration exam.

These programmes will be run by experienced providers Buttercups at an excellent value to our members. The training programme is very comprehensive which covers a broad range of topics.

Aside from the scheduled events, tutors and trainees enrolled on this programme can also benefit from the continued support and advice available from the training facilitators who are in regular contact with the Royal Pharmaceutical Society and attend their annual Pre-registration Managers’ meeting. In addition, all trainees will be given access to the Pharmacy e-Training System which will allow them to access news and information relating to the Pre-registration year and to download course materials.

The tutor training workshop is FREE and the Pre-registration course fees are only £975.00 + VAT per candidate for Birmingham. Enrolments are being accepted immediately. These rates are very much competitive than others in the market. Hence do not miss this opportunity.

You can enrol your pre-registration trainees by either faxing the completed form to 0121 326 6700 or email at:
