Job Description

We have a fantastic opportunity to complete your pre-registration year at Thackers Pharmacy, our family run independent pharmacy in Baguley, Wythenshawe, which has been serving the local community for over 35 years (since 1983). We already have one pre-reg starting next year, but require one more. We have had two pre-reg tutors since 2009 and had a very successful pass rate in that time. We are a busy dispensing pharmacy that also offers many services for you to gain experience in.

The services we provide include:

  • Minor ailment services (MAS)
  • Emergency hormonal contraception (EHC)
  • Travel clinic and flu vaccine
  • Chlamydia treatment
  • Weight management service (lipotrim)
  • Inhaler technique advice
  • Community Pharmacy Consultation Service (CPCS)
  • New medicine service (NMS)

Due to the volume of prescriptions we dispense, we have a dispensing robot located in the pharmacy to ease the workload. We offer experience in over the counter sales, dispensing and the various services. It is an excellent opportunity if you are a current pharmacy student, in order to gain experience and knowledge of the variety of medicines available and to gain an insight on how a pharmacy is run in the real world.

Our pre-registration year includes two weeks at UHSM hospital for valuable hospital experience and some days at a local GP surgery shadowing a pharmacist. We have 2 pre-registration students each year and 3 pharmacy students that work on Saturdays and during the week on holidays.

Here is a testimonial from a previous pre reg at Thackers Pharmacy;

Re: Sunil Thacker and Thacker’s Pharmacy

I was a pre-registration student from 2017 to 2018, and I can only say good things about my time at Thacker’s Pharmacy. Sunil Thacker’s tutoring is very professional, effective and shows genuine passion for bringing up the next generation of pharmacists.

The pharmacy is extremely well regarded by the local community, and serves many patients as a result. This was perfect for my pre-reg experience, as you will get the chance to fulfil your goals and practice your clinical skills which will prepare you for further practice.

However, even after pre-registration, you will always be offered support with the same dedication and passion. When you do a pre-registration at Thacker’s Pharmacy, you feel like you are not only part of the pharmacy community, but also a part of the Thacker’s family. You will always be treated as an equal.
