PRPS Recruitment

Welcome to the Pre-Registration Pharmacist Scheme in Scotland


NHS Education for Scotland (NES) coordinates a centralised recruitment process whereby the selection of suitable recruits into the PRPS is by means of a standardised, quality assured process. Following this, placement of successful PRPS trainees is carried out considering both the preferences of the trainee and the training provider.

The pre-registration training placement gives trainees the opportunity to develop knowledge, skills and experience in real-life situations under the guidance and supervision of a GPhC approved tutor.
