    We have had this asked a few times as I recall. Try looking round the forum. The last time I believe it was this thread: -

        What's the OSPAP program - some overseas pharmacist program?

          When you get in touch with the RPSGB, they will give you all the details.

              There are already a lot of posts on pre-reg places and pay on the forum, as well as general working conditions.

                  Looks like UK still regarded as a honeypot. Next year likely to be greatest shortage ever as many elderly pharmacists like me will quit. Would not be surprised if this then precipitates remote supervision etc as an 'emergency measure'. Unless a few people die, will become the norm and pharmacists will be two a penny from then on with wages to match. Last happened in the thirties. Desperate unemployed pharmacists will then start opening 100 hour pharmacies as only way out of poverty.

                    Probably won't come to that - don't forget that pharmacists are graduates as well and have lots of transferable skills if the worst comes to the worst.

                      Mind you, if the DoH and the big multiples get their own way, we'll be able to open 100-hour pharmacies and only be there for 51 hours in the week...!
                      (Except here in Wales, where Control of entry regs haven't been relaxed, even for 100-hour shops...)

                        Oh! so that is why I keep meeting science graduates working as minimum wage assistants in pharmacy. One or two dispensers also have a science degree but unable to get work in what they studied.(forensic pkarmacology, pharmaceutical sciences, marine biology, biology etc, etc)

                          Hi

                          Just to remind the overseas pharmacists that they need to start saving up as the course fee is 8000 pounds (maybe is more now, it increases every year) in addition to the expensive rent and life expenses.
                          I forgot to mention that you need to pay about 500-600 pounds for your documents to be looked at by the RPSGB commitee, and if you were asked to come for an interview with the adjudicating commitee you will have to pay a similar amount £500-600 roughly (an interview fee).
                          good luck.

                            Pharmacy experience definitely helps and just a tip look for a pre-reg place well before you start the course, contact your OSPAP provider to see if they can help before you start, an number of OSPAP students I am in contact with are struggling to find places although those with lots of experience have found it easier, at the moment it seems there are more potential pre-reg's than training posts.

                            Course costs are expensive yes and you have to live... well I also like to eat... I would say don't start if you can't budget at least £16000 for the course, and living.

                            From the sounds of things it will be at least a couple of years before you start recovering your investment. There also is a degree of pessimism about the future of pharmacists in the UK.

                            Is there not a lot of money in the Indian pharmaceutical industry?

                              Re: information about OSPAP

                              Hello! After waiting for 7 (long!) months I have finally gotten the outcome letter from RPSGB saying I am eligible to do the OSPAP!!!

                              I want to start Sept 2009 but I am currently on a working holiday maker visa in the UK and my visa don't end until 26/9/2010. Can anybody tell me if I can apply to the OSPAP providers using this visa or do I have to change to a student/dependent (my fiance is in UK) no matter what???

                              I am aware that I can't change to a student visa until I've gotten a confirmation letter from the University, right?

                              Please help!
