The Training Programme:
Our unique training programme produced the first winner of the Buttercups National Pre-registration Student of the Year (Daniel Jones, pictured) and also the youngest ever GPhC inspector (Craig Whitelock-Wainwright). We combine two training providers, ProPharmace and GreenLife Pharma, providing an RPS accredited training programme covering exam preparation, clinical topics, calculations, consultation skills, law & ethics, first aid, and professional development. You will also receive training in pharmacy business, economics, management and leadership. You will also be given protected study time every week. Imaan Healthcare has trained over 150 pharmacists, has a pass rate above the national average and sits on regional and national advisory boards.
Whilst working in branch you will be given a dedicated tutor and will learn to adopt the roles and responsibilities of your supervising pharmacist. You will be given the opportunity to take the lead in providing services including smoking cessation, substance misuse, flu vaccinations, blood pressure testing, blood glucose monitoring, health promotion campaigns and much more.
We aim to provide cross sector placements in GP Practices, some of these will last up to 6 months. The company has a dedicated Clinical GP Practice Pharmacist who oversees this part of the programme (Ghulam Haydar). You will also be encouraged to gain experience in other sectors and with different healthcare professionals e.g. hospital, diabetes nurses, respiratory nurses, anti-coagulation clinics, etc.
Once you qualify we will continue to support you throughout your career and help you choose the career path most suited to you.

“At Imaan Healthcare as a pre-reg you are taught from day one to make the happiness of the patient the cornerstone of everything you do. For me, my year as a pre-registration pharmacist was all about taking opportunities to become the best newly qualified pharmacist I could be. Luckily for me my aim was also Imaan’s aim, to help me”
