Testimonials

Here is a small selection of the feedback we have received from our members

  • Thank you so much for all your help and support. I cannot thank you enough. Honestly without your support, I am confident the outcome would have been very different, it was only when I had your support that I saw a change in how the investigation was heading.

    “I found the practice questions useful, both clinical and calculations. The answers were helpful as they showed the rationale behind each answer. The dilution session was also very useful as it helped show different ways to tackle various dilution-style questions. Overall I’d say it was a beneficial programme to enrol onto. Thank you!”

  • It's lovely to see the PDA taking such a proactive role in Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI), especially coming from one of the communities myself. Thank you for your work and support.

  • It's so nice to see all the support offered by the lovely members of the network. Seeing how successful they are gives me a lot of hope for the future of my career. It's so good to see and be involved in all the hard work that's being done to fight the inequalities within pharmacy.

    I would like to thank the PDA for all their support and understanding throughout my time as an MPharm student at the University during the Covid-19 pandemic. The PDA have gone above and beyond to help my voice be heard by the university and supported me with an academic misconduct allegation where I felt it was near impossible for me to prove my innocence as university invigilators were not present. Becoming a PDA member is the best thing I have done as a student and I urge all pharmacy students to join the PDA.

    From the day they cancelled the exam the PDA have been fighting for us and I really really appreciate it. The extra effort that you have all gone to like writing questions, launching the revision programme, doing a webinar, has been so useful to me and the support from yourself has been amazing, getting emails from you every now and then about what you’re doing to help is so reassuring.

  • This has been a really helpful revision programme, the live session, mini mock and additional questions have been so helpful. At a time of such uncertainty and stress, knowing the PDA has been there to support us has been a huge help...

    This has been a really helpful revision programme, the live session, mini mock and additional questions have been so helpful. At a time of such uncertainty and stress, knowing the PDA has been there to support us has been a huge help and I will always remember the reassurance you’ve tried to provide and the revision programme you’ve run to give us some support as our careers hang in the balance.

  • It was great to have a structured mini-course (not content-heavy) tips and tricks to work through in our own time, with timed mocks to undertake from a reputable source and be able to review them and sit them more than once.

  • I just really wanted to say thanks for the help. I had a fantastic outcome yesterday and the endless work and support of the PDA really helped to make that happen...

I had a fantastic outcome yesterday and the endless work and support of the PDA really helped to make that happen, from these questions to knowing we had your support when the exam was cancelled and our entire futures were uncertain. Thank you so much!
