Pharmacy Futures

Building the NI pharmacy workforce for the future

Now live…. 

To prepare for the 1,100+ additional roles in the NI pharmacy sector required over the next five years, Pharmacy Futures NI have been engaging with NI post-primary schools and encouraging students to make pharmacy their career of choice.

The highlight of their outreach activity is a dynamic virtual careers event on Wednesday 19 May but which will also be made available as an ongoing resource. Lasting 30 minutes, their virtual showcase event will give pupils an exciting insight into life as a pharmacist in Northern Ireland – from studying pharmacy at university, to the first few years as a pharmacist and opportunities to progress in hospital, community and GP surgery pharmacy sectors. This event will be hosted by Cool FM’s Rebecca McKinney.
