  • Pre-Reg Pharmacist Training


    Kamsons Pharmacy Pre-registration Pharmacist Training Programme was recognised at the Chemist & Druggist Awards on 6th June 2019 as the winner of the prestigious C&D Training and Development Award. This award was for the quality, breadth and results of the Kamsons Pre-reg Training Programme.

    Some of the reasons why Kamsons Pharmacy won the C&D Training & Development Award are:

    • Every year Kamsons beats the General Pharmaceutical Council’s Registration Exam national pass rate.
    • Kamsons Pharmacy is the only large company to have achieved a 100% GPhC Registration Exam pass rate for two consecutive years.
    • Long established in-house training programme that has been running and developed over more than 15 years
    • An emphasis on pastoral care- at Kamsons we know it a difficult year working full time whilst studying for the hardest exam of your life. We will look after you and support you throughout the year. Our Pre-reg Training Manager is on hand to support both pre-reg trainees and tutors with any issues
    • We provide a broad experience and partnership working to provide you with a really interesting year including visits to a hospice to learn about palliative care, some joint training days with hospital pre-reg trainees, visiting lecturers from University of Cambridge Medical School and University of East Anglia and full-length mock exams from the University of Bradford. Note that our pre-regs in Manchester and Leeds undertake a different programme and will not attend all of these sessions.
    • Over a third of our pharmacist managers are our ex-pre-registration trainees.
    • Some newly qualified Kamsons pharmacists go straight into managing their own Kamsons Pharmacy whilst most stay on and work covering managers’ days off and holidays in a range of Kamsons Pharmacy branches
    • Our training is broad enough to provide you with the experience to work anywhere- immediately after their pre-reg year with Kamsons,  our newly qualified pharmacists  have gone straight into jobs in hospital pharmacies, GP surgeries and the pharmaceutical industry. One ex-Kamsons pre-reg even owns his own pharmacies in Brighton.
    • Our pre-reg tutors are committed to providing you with excellent training. They all volunteer for the role.
    • Our ex-pre-regs give great feedback on their year.
