    Any updates?

    Unfortunately I have not heard back from either Lloyds or Wells yet, a bit worrying. I would like to know asap since all my other summer plans are on hold until I know whether I have a placement yet to plan around.
    Exactly the same situation here- I've applied to Lloyds but heard nothing yet

    If any of you need a hand getting an industry summer placement let me now. I'm a 4th yr student, with a pre-reg in industry and I've had 1 industry summer placement, 3 hospital placements and worked in lloyds community for 2 years as a dispenser.

    I would benefit from that for sure! You've had impressive work experience, how were you able to gain so many placements?

    Hey, thanks for your reply, can I ask which email did you send it to? Did they offer you specific dates to choose from if so what were they?
    Congrats on getting your place

    Hey, GSK is open right now I believe. The placement is 10 weeks long & it is in the Essex/Hertfordshire area. I was going to apply but it is too far

    I sent an email to [email protected]. It just seems so unorganised, hope they get back to you soon. They just asked me what dates suit me best, it depends whether the branch you choose pharmacist is on holiday at any point in the 4 weeks you have chosen so it could vary. I'm doing mine start of June thank you, hope you hear back soon

    Yes, I highly recommend you do that. Don't be ashamed, it's not a big deal.

    Did that today and was told by 2 of them that it was a shame I was at a uni so far away as they had vacancies for Saturday staff that I would have been perfect for Typical! Hopefully something will come out of it for the summer though as that's what I asked about.
    Have you managed to get any other work experience in the past? How did you get that if you did (if you don't mind me being nosy!)?

    Yep! Fingers crossed something comes up for you!!
    Last year I did one with well.Applied online, they got back to me in April & it was an absolute nightmare. I didn't apply for a placement with Well this time, scarred me for life!.
    I also applied to boots last year but their website crashed & the online assessment wouldn't come up. I wasn't the only person who had this problem. I have applied for boots this year, whatever happens I'm not really fussed. I want to do something different this summer.What I'm hoping to do is ask a few independents if I can come in for a few weeks then do something else.Something that I want to do not something I *have* to do.Know what I mean.
    Good luck! Honestly mate do not feel bad if you haven't got a placement with one of these chains, it's just the name.
    Definitely ask around & organise something for yourself
