COVID-19 Pharmacy Pre-Registration Trainee statement - HEE, HEIW, NES

We are working closely with partners and colleagues to keep our learners informed and reviewing the impact of COVID-19 on the pharmacy workforce. This means working through the advice and responding to emerging concerns.

New Guidance for pre-registration trainee pharmacists and pre-registration trainee pharmacy technicians has been issued. This is a coordinated response across England, Wales and Scotland.

This guidance is published on HEE’s Coronavirus (Covid-19) Information for trainees web page:  https://www.hee.nhs.uk/coronavirus-information-trainees and attached as a pdf.

Up-to-date guidance and information from HEE, NHS England and NHS Improvement and the government is also available on HEE’s coronavirus (COVID-19) web page. This is to help health professionals, HEE staff and the public respond to coronavirus (COVID-19).

Thank you, on behalf of HEE’s Regional Pharmacy Deans, for cascading this information via your channels and networks.
