Health Education England (HEE) is calling for expressions of interest to participate in centralised pre-registration pharmacist recruitment.
HEE will be introducing centralised recruitment and selection for pre-registration pharmacists posts from 2017 onwards. This process will utilise the IT system ORIEL which is already in place for the recruitment of dentists, doctors and healthcare scientists. It will apply to all hospital pre-registration pharmacist posts and will be optional for community pharmacy pre-registration posts. Further information about the proposed process is available here.
The HEE are asking community pharmacy employers for their expressions of interest to sign up to the scheme. This is not a firm commitment which you will be held to. It will enable HEE to undertake planning using estimated numbers. HEE will write to those that have expressed an interest asking for an actual sign up in November 2016.
PharmaPlus strongly suggests that you should express your interest to ensure that you have the best chance of recruiting your student.
