PRPS Recruitment

Welcome to the Pre-Registration Pharmacist Scheme 2018-19

NES coordinates a centralised recruitment process: Selection of suitable recruits into the scheme is by means of a standardised, co-ordinated process, and the placement of the successful PRPS trainees takes full account of Training Provider and prospective trainee preferences.

In order to provide the information needed by both trainee applicants and Training Providers during the recruitment process, these pages provide helpful information including key dates, the essential criteria of the training posts and guidance documents for each stage of the process.

See the links to the left for:

- Information for Trainee Applicants

GPhC Application Form – Applying to join the Pre-Registration Pharmacist Scheme for 2018-19

Trainees who are due to undertake their pre-registration training in Scotland for the 2018-19 training year (starting summer 2018) are required to submit the GPhC Application to NES Pharmacy rather than directly to the GPhC. This applies to both PRPS funded and non-funded trainees. The application form, associated guidance plus key dates will be available on the GPhC website in 2018 and this site will be updated with guidance once this is available.
