    LoL do you really think you would get 34k when you're not qualified?

    Hospital pre-reg is band 5 - it changes slightly from year to year. Currently it's £20,225. I think community is usually less but I head somebody say Sainsburys were offering £21k for pre-reg, not sure how true that is!

    You start on band 6 when you're newly qualified, which is currently £24,103. It's more for newly qualified in community (over 30k a year usually)

    I know but 34k after pre-reg seems high. Surely in that instance, there is a lot of potential for it to go up.

    The Sainsburys thing is true, I read it yesterday. Here;s a link:

    http://www.sainsburys.co.uk/aboutus/...=nav_secondary

    Quote "In return for your hard work, you can look forward to all the support you need to become a qualified Pharmacist. As our scheme is run in conjunction with the National Pharmacy Association, it also includes both off-site training days and a mock exam. What’s more, you’ll get a starting salary of £21.5k and 22 days’ holiday."

    The pre-reg I was working with in my last job was on £19 and that was 2 years ago at Lloyds. I'm about to start a new job in hospital pharmacy before going to uni in a year or two and my salary will be over £15 with just an NVQ2 and no dispensing involved so some of the salaries listed here seem really low. Coincidentally the pre-reg went straight into locuming and made an absolute fortune by being cheeky and asking over the odds!

    Sorry I missed the k off the end of that. It should read £15k. I've been in community pharmacy for 18 months so decided to try a different side of pharmacy.

    As far as I'm aware, industrial pharmacy is quite diffcult to get into. Some pharmacy students at Nottingham were saying last year there were 6 pre-reg places in the whole country in industry and as most people spend the first few years at least in the same stream they started in, it's not particularly easy. Someone at another uni mentioned the pay for industrial pharmacists is less than in community but there are so many more oportunities once you're in to work your way up to 6 or 7 figure salaries. It just needs lots of work!

    As for pay scales for hospital pharmacists, official for pre-reg is £14,189 and then it goes into pay bands. I believe pharmacists start in band 6 which is £24,103-£32,653. The director of pharmacy at a hospital local to me is in band 8 (which is split into 8A, 8B 8C and 8D) so his pay is anywhere between £37,106-£77,109. Final band is Band 9 and I'd imagine directors of pharmacy in charge of entire trusts would be in this band which is upto £93,038. There is then weighting for inner London, outer London and fringe London and extra for being on emergency call out.

    No, hospital pre-reg is band 5, which is around 20K this year.

    No university provides you with a pre-reg, you have to apply yourself.

    The society give a certain amount to the company for each pre-reg (can't remember exactly what off the top of my head but it's in the Drug Tariff) and then it's upto the company what they pay the pre-reg. Remember, you will be working fulltime in your pre-reg (and studying as well!) so they have to pay you as a member of staff.
