The East London NHS Foundation Trust pharmacy department employs around 50 staff comprising pharmacists, technicians, students and assistants. We offer excellent training and development opportunities in a friendly, flexible working environment


Our pre-registration programme enables trainees to bridge the gap between primary and secondary care, leaving them the option to pursue a career in either sector. The hospital training programme comprises a diverse rotational scheme covering all aspects of clinical and technical hospital practice.  Clinical rotations include mental health care of the elderly, childhood and adolescent, acute, perinatal and forensics. There are also rotations to acute general hospitals and possibly CCG to offer a general overview of hospital pharmacy practice. 

We offer two posts to undertake a six-month mental health hospital and six-month community split pre-registration programme, together with Day Lewis pharmacy. This includes joining the Bart's Health NHS Trust pre-registration trainee tutorial programme.

A 12-month rotational pre-registration programme at our Luton site. The trainee will rotate through community pharmacy, mental health and general rotations at acute general hospitals within Luton & Bedfordshire.

We recruit annually for pre-registration trainee pharmacists in late summer for the proceeding July intake. Posts are advertised on the Oriel website where you can also apply online.
