What is the NES co-ordinated modular programme?

NHS Education for Scotland (NES) works with several training providers to offer modular pre registration pharmacist training programmes for one year.

Modular training programmes offer a range of hospital experience, community experience and sector specific experience adding an element of specialism in a programme plan that consists of three work placement blocks, each with specified learning outcomes.

We have developed a recording of a previous trainee who completed the Modular training programme and information about his experience. The recording can be accessed here.

The programmes for the community and hospital blocks are drawn from the PRPS programme framework which has been approved by the GPhC. The trainee will focus on developing patient-centred clinical skills including communication, provision of drug therapy with the goal of achieving good therapeutic outcomes and provision of relevant, evidenced based information and advice to patients in both the hospital and community setting. The work placement blocks typically consist of community practice for 6 months, hospital practice for 4 months and the sector specific block of 2 months. The full list of proposed modular programmes available for the 2021-2022 pre-reg training year will be available soon.


Who would this programme be for?

The modular training format will appeal to candidates who would enjoy working as part of a multi-disciplinary health care team, who are interested in developing their skills and knowledge of different pharmacy specialties, and in gaining experience of delivering direct patient care in different sectors of practice. Candidates need to be flexible and willing to work across different sites.
