    Hm, 4 days.. it might be but try and get a few more weeks. I did 6 weeks work experience in 2 different pharmacies and Liverpool accepted that. But bare in mind I am doing Pharmacology not Pharmacy.

    Just go and ask your local pharmacies if they need any help. Say that you want to volunteer/have some work experience and will do anything they need. For example in one of the pharmacies that I went all I did was dispensing drugs but I learned a lot of names of drugs and what are they used for.

    Good luck

    not really, you can try getting it for the summer holiday and phone them, i wanted to find psychology related work experience and i phoned the lady, they do them but it didn't say on the website.
