You probably won't be able to switch your pre-reg now to hospital if that's what you're asking.

But if you're wondering about potentially working as a hospital pharmacist post qualifying, I think a pretty good way to do it is through a locum agency. If you dont have any hospital experience you'll likely be in the dispensary while they train you up on inpatient monitoring, its a good way to get your foot in the door and from there you can continue or apply for band 6 permanent posts :smile:

During prereg- not full time I'm afraid but you can ask to do a placement in a hospital (you would have to arrange it and your orereg tutor would have to agree to it).

Post regostration: find a locum agency or register with nhs professionals. Also nhs jobs for bridging jobs
