    Have not worked in Hospital but a friend of mine reckons it's the best way to go.

    Less paperwork etc. plus you rarely have to meet sh*tty members of the general public!

      Hospital

      Piq

      I have worked in industry, hospital and retail - Ok I get sacked a lot....... :evil:

      I would say hospital is generally more interesting, as you need to use more of your clinical knowledge, and can specialise in one area of pharmacy (eg renal pharmacy).

      There are good stores to work in though, and there are people on the forum who are happy with their retail career.

      If you come to the UK you could start in retail, and look for a suitable hospital role when you are here.

      In general we still seem to be short of pharmacists in the UK (from my experience) and you would easily get a job in retail, as well as a better starting salary.

      Lively debate is encouraged but please respect the opinions and feelings of others.
      Please help keep the forum vibrant by spreading the work to friends and colleagues via word of mouth or social media.
      Thank you for contributing to this site.

            I worked with a pharmacist I hadn't worked with on monday.

            After four hours she said that I had the perfect customer service attributes for industry.

                      yes giggsy,

                      You can work your pre-reg wherever you like, Community, Hospital or Industry. Each one should be accredited by the RPSGB and will entitle you to become a member of the Register provided you meet the competency standards and pass your registration exam.

                      You are then free to apply to work as a pharmacist in any sector.
