Return to Work Opportunities

What is the Supported Training Placement Programme?

Returning Pharmacists who have completed the CPPE Return to Work training programme have the opportunity to join one of our Pharmacies, where they will be supported by a Supervising Pharmacist to help put the knowledge into practice on either a full or part time basis for one to two months.

During your time in branch you will be provided with a structured schedule and workbook to complete which includes topics covered by the CPPE programme.

  • Location will be as close to your home address as possible
  • Mileage expenses covered if travel is extensive

  • Opportunity to join Day Lewis if a position is available
