Pharmacy MPharm(Hons): Facilities

Pharmacy lab

Central to your learning is our new pharmacy practice laboratory, designed to allow you to experience what it is like in a real pharmacy and finesse your skills before you start working in the health service. Based at our Penrhyn Road campus, the £420,000 centre includes:

  • 40 medicine-dispensing stations;
  • a pharmacy counter;
  • a consulting area; and
  • computers connected to the Nexphase system (used in many local pharmacies).

Pharmacy practice laboratoryYou practice your people and diagnostic skills through role plays, taking it in turns to play the patient. Other role plays include advising doctors (usually played by experienced tutors) on how to deal with prescribing errors and clinical problems.

When dispensing prescriptions you have to make all the same checks that you would make in a real pharmacy, including:

  • analysing prescriptions to check they have been filled in correctly by doctors;
  • checking clinical issues such as how one medicine might interact with another; and
  • advising pretend patients on how to take their prescriptions.
