PDA invite pre-reg members to complete a short survey

Since we launched our first pre-reg survey last month, we emailed you a second letter which detailed the consequences of the GPhC's decision to postpone the registration exam due to the coronavirus.

We also hosted a webinar for our pre-reg members, published some FAQs and have continued to highlight how the coronavirus crisis has impacted on pre-registration pharmacists (read more).

We are committed to continuing to support you and listen to your views and would, therefore, appreciate your time in completing our second pre-reg survey so that we can find out more about your experience of being a pre-reg so far. The approximate completion time for this survey is 6 minutes.

Please be assured that the PDA is in regular contact with the GPhC, government agencies, professional bodies, pharmacy contractors and NHS leaders to share experiences from members and to represent and protect your interests during this pandemic.

We have also noted that the GPhC will make a further announcement towards the end of May.

The issues you share will be valuable as we will continue to lobby on your behalf, communicate with you and issue guidance to you where appropriate.

We are also in the process of speaking to many of you who have registered your interest in our Pre-reg Rep role. If you would like to get in touch to discuss this, please contact Jayne Love, PDA Organiser, on

Help us to help more people in the profession. Refer a friend to join the PDA today!

If you know any pre-regs or pharmacy students that are not yet members of the PDA, please encourage them to join the PDA for FREE today so that we can also support them in their career journey. Membership is FREE for students and pre-regs.

Thank you for your time and your continued support.
