Carers Trust Wales is working with the School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences at Cardiff University to help facilitate 50 Pharmacy Student Placements amongst our Network Partners across South Wales.
Each placement will run for one day and will take place throughout November and early December.
This is an excellent opportunity to raise the students' awareness of carers, of which there are 370,000 within Wales. The placements will highlight to the students the issues carers face and the support they need. It will allow the students to reflect on how they may be able to help identify and support carers in their role as pharmacists. The placements are also an opportunity to highlight the type of work Carers Trust Wales and its Network Partners do within the social care sector and the difference this support can make to carers and those they care for.
