Pre-Reg is becoming Foundation

From July 2021, Pre-Registration training is changing its name to Foundation training.

Pre-Registration trainees will be known as Trainee Pharmacists.

To find out more, visit the GPhC Foundation Training Year Hub.

NOTE: We're still updating all our webpages, so you may spot "Pre-Registration" or "Pre-Reg" on our website and resources.
