Community Pharmacy – A career of choice (Scotland)
To help promote pharmacy as a career of choice in Scotland and to help facilitate and advocate the various different career options in pharmacy, the CCA and NPA have developed a resource pack (links below) in consultation with school teachers. The pack offers information to consider for a career in community pharmacy.
The resource pack below aims to describe the career choices available in community pharmacy including being a pharmacist, and those roles that support the pharmacy e.g. pharmacy technicians, pharmacy dispensers and healthcare assistants.
This information is aimed at delivery by teachers, pharmacists or pharmacy team members at career events or as part of a class lesson.
