    I want to do hospital but i don't think i will get in, so i don't want to go through the application process and just be disheartened.

    Also, for hospital you need to reject community placements and then wait to get a response from hospitals...

    So its a risk you need to take. Not sure...

    how about you?
    I see what you mean. A lot of people from the year above told me they accepted a community pre-reg and thereafter applied to hospital. Once they got a hospital pre-reg they accepted it and rejected the community one, but it would leave a bad impression. Im not sure, im definitely more interested in community and so think I would prefer a prereg in community, but I guess theres no harm in trying hospital just to get experience of the interview process? Well, that is my plan for now anyway.

    Not all contracts are easy to get out of once signed. Especially boots.

    I have been told by boots that "under offer" should mean the offer details have been sent through.

    (I think this is good?)

    But i haven't yet received anything. They said we should hear back for pre reg by end of the week.

    Congrats!!!!! im sure you will get the email soon! I called them and they told me by the end of next week. I believe they're doing it region by region so they told me to keep checking the HR status as it will change in a couple of days. Hopefully I get an offer too!

    Hello, has anyone worked in Boots in Salisbury before? I have an offer for pre-reg there but I am really indecisive now as I am from the north of England. Thanks!
