Question: I'm not getting as much study time as my friend. What shall I do? Answer: The GPhC unfortunately have not mandated a minimum amount of study time that pre-reg pharmacists should get. The best advice would be to have a discussion with your tutor and see if you can negotiate. Some of your peers may not be getting any study time at all. Be clear about why you need extra study time and how it is going to benefit you. Above all, be realistic.

Charles Thiede

CEO and Co-Founder, Zapnito Ltd.

My background is in technology, professional services and digital media. I co-founded Zapnito due to a number of related observations from my time in these sectors: 1) the social web is creating a huge amount of noise 2) expertise that brands have built up over decades is being drowned out and hidden from those that need it 3) these brands are therefore losing their audience to often undeserving and unhelpful sources, and 4) people are finding it harder to access the expertise that they truly value. I therefore decided to create Zapnito, a white-label platform to help trusted brands reclaim their audiences via expert-driven knowledge networks.
