Pre Registration at Superdrug
I’m so glad that I chose to do my pre-registration year with Superdrug. They have a continual high pass rate due to the support that they give, with opportunities to learn from top pharmacy managers
Message from our Pharmacy Superintendent
“We know your Pre-Reg year is a key time, when you make the transition from studying to practicing as a registered pharmacist. We build your confidence and develop your people skills so you’re ready to practice from day one of registration. We give you the opportunity to learn in a highly supportive, professional environment. You take responsibility for your own training and development, working with your tutor to make sure you achieve all your goals. I am especially proud of our programme. I completed my pre-reg in 2012/13 and had a truly fantastic experience. After my pre-reg, I secured a role as a Pharmacy Manager where I was given support and training to help me as a newly qualified pharmacist. Since then, I’ve had a number of different roles and completed lots of training and development programmes meaning that I have felt valued and invested in since I joined! I do hope you consider our Pre-Reg Programme, it could be the start of a long and happy career for you!” Niamh McMillan - Pharmacy Superintendent
Dr Zoe recognises Superdrug Pre-Reg
As a GP I absolutely respect and value the incredible work that community pharmacists do. A pharmacist’s pre-reg placement is a really important start to their professional career and getting the right experience, opportunities and development is likely to have a huge impact on your career going forwards.
I’ve been working with Superdrug now for a couple of years and have been impressed with the culture of the organisation. Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic they have been constantly striving to innovate and excel in order to provide the best service to their customers, whether that be through home testing devices for sexual infections or UTIs, to COVID-19 antibody testing, to providing a free medication pouching service for those patients who struggle to organise their daily medication.
A Superdrug pre-reg experience is likely to have added benefits of additional clinical experience through working closely with the nurse clinics, and also a unique opportunity when it comes to the huge retail industry of health and beauty.
Wishing you all the best of luck in your way to becoming a valued pharmacist.
Pre Reg Coaches
We are Pre-reg coaches Fatima and Lisa. Both of us were lucky to do our Pre-reg year with Superdrug and have stayed with the company ever since! Between us we have held numerous positions within the company, both store and head office based. Check out below to see how other Pre-reg careers have developed! The biggest benefit of doing your Pre-reg with Superdrug Is that it is small enough for good work to be noticed, but big enough to map out an exciting career path.
The Pre-Reg year constantly evolves year on year and now consists of hands on training, sessions focusing on high weighted topics, calculations practice, support with passing the exam which results in first class pharmacists with patient care at the forefront.
Superdrug's Pre Reg Programme is fun too!
Within a fun environment the Pharmacy team get involved in all the store events. With annual conferences and regular team events we place value on our teams enjoying their time with us as well as their professional development!
