Do you like trying to solve problems?

Do you fancy a career with variety and lots of long-term professional possibilities?

If you answer yes to any of those, then pharmacy could be a great career choice for you.

This Insight day from NHS Cornwall will explore different career options and pathways in pharmacy, hearing from those in the job to tell us what a ‘day in the life’ is like, and the greatest challenges and rewards of their work.

With a lunchbreak in-between, we’ll spend some time learning more about different:

  • ROUTES: Whether you want to go to university, or head or straight into working life on an apprenticeship, pharmacy offers career routes to suit all types of academic or on-the-job learning styles.
  • ROLES: From pharmacy assistants and technicians working in the heart of local communities and hospitals, to qualified pharmacists assessing and advising patients on managing a range of health conditions, there are roles to suit all.
  • SKILLS and VALUES: We’ll even practice some which you’ll need to show-off your individual strengths for a successful NHS career.
