to the best of my knowledge you must attend the course first(ospap),to be able to work anywhere as a pharmacist.have you done the IELTS TEST?

I'm planning to take the test by end of this month. Hopefully I'll get my biometric residence permit soon. I have appointment on 7th, next week. Thank you soo much for your reply. I'm actually new to this whole student forum thing so it was a pleasant surprise hearing from someone. Is it possible for me to apply in any pharmaceutical industry jobs?

to be honest I think you can only work as a ATO.PREVIOUSLY YOU COULD WORK AS PHARMACY TECH,HOWEVER YOU NOW HAVE TO REGISTER WITH THE SOCIETY AND UNDERGO A TRAINING PERIOD.BUT CONTACT THE GPHC FIRST.

Thanks much. What is ATO btw? I probably have to do OSPAP. It's just a tad tedious work I feel; feels almost asif I'm starting everything all over again. Where do you work currently?

ato is assistant tevhnical officer which is lower than a technician in terms of pay.alternatively you can register with the gphc as a pharmacy technician but it requires some training time.contact the gphc for more info
