Summer Placement at Barts Health NHS Trust

Summer students based at RLH All Barts Health summer studentsI spent 4 weeks as a summer student at the Royal London Hospital. Rotating weekly through admissions, surgery and ITU, paediatrics, and renal medicine, I gained a lot of clinical knowledge by shadowing and learning from pharmacists and going on ward rounds. It was great to observe pharmacists working together in a multidisciplinary team to provide patient-centred care. I also had the opportunity to screen drug charts using specialist resources like ‘The Renal Drug Database’ and the ‘Handbook on Injectable Drugs’.

Working with the other summer students was really interesting, and we all went out for dinner at the end of the placement. Everyone from pharmacy team was very welcoming and helpful and the time just flew by… time flies when you’re having fun!
