What to do when your preregistration trainee is unhappy with their training


Gosh, This advice opens up all sorts of potential employment problems for a Pre-reg. Do the authors truly believe that the RPS or the GPhC are appropriate sources of advice in employment law matters? Do the authors really think that Pre-regs should be contacting the HR departments of their employers or the NPA (an employer representative body) for advice? Or do the authors believe that their piece is adequate - even though they have not addressed employment law issues - for if so, what has happened to the editorial policy of the PJ? This piece should have intelligently considered also the employment law issues providing appropriate and proper sources of advice which would have included the PDA Union, a trade union for pharmacists which is very used to offering employment law advice to Pre-regs; doing so on a very frequent basis. We suggest that the PJ contemplates this for any forthcoming editions.
