          Right. Firstly don't be so lazy. As a pharmacist you should be able to display a reasonable degree of intelligence and should be more than capable of answering your own questions. If you can't, the what the hell are you doing practising?

          There are several ways to find out how to come to the UK to practice pharmacy. A good start is to look at the royal pharmaceutical society's website.
          Also have a look in our global section of the forum for details about the international conversion courses available to you once you reach the UK.

          And don't expect everyone to do everything for you! You want to do this, YOU do the work of finding out how. We all have access to the same information sources as you do!

            i've moved this thread to a more suitable section of the forum.

                Can I just ask you, you say you have dpharmacy. Is that where you do pharmacy for 2 years and get a licence to put a shop?. I don't mean to be offensive but that type of knowledge is useless here.

                  Hi Zarana,

                  I'm guessing that a diploma pharmacist is more or less the Uk equivalent of pharmacy technician. i.e you have studied pharmacy but not up to a degree level. Working as a pharmacy technician without being registered may be difficult because legally if you want to continue working after 2010 you need to be registered so most employers won't accept you unless you will be able to register by then.

                  My advice would be to ask the pharmacies where you are if they can take you on and get you through an NVQ, may be faster with your existing qualifications but will allow you to register as a technician.

                  As a start though be willing to take any job even a counter assistant just to get into the system. You could also try locum agencies or applying for basic posts in hospitals (do a google search for NHS jobs).

                  Good luck.

                      erk!
                      Zarana - just to warn you - an 'assistant pharmacist' still has to have a recognised degree and be registered with the pharmaceutical society - the use of 'pharmacist' in the UK is a restricted title.

                      Will you be coming over to work as a pharmacy assistant, or pharmacy technician?

                      If so, then the NVQ qualifications will be an excellent start for you - and there will be routes opened up to you over time if you wish to pursue a career as a pharmacist via access courses which would allow you to join a degree course and eventually qualify as a uk pharmacist.

                      Most of all, good luck!

                            Hi Zarana,

                            Seem a little harsh some of these responses. I see where you are coming from the UK is a vast expanse and can seem quite scary when starting out. Best advise I can give you:

                            Make sure your English is up to scratch this is one thing proprietors look for.
                            Make sure you have a good CV - check google documents for really good examples.
                            Apply to the large shops they are always looking for flexible people to work weekends etc.
                            Check boots, lloyds, superdrug....

                            Good luck.
