The pharmacy chain Well has secured a long-term partnership with Keele University to develop and hone the skills of students studying at its school of pharmacy.

As part of the collaboration Well has opened a pharmacy on the university campus, believed to be unprecedented, and a clinical consulting suite inside the school of pharmacy, developments Well said would provide “Keele students with a unique learning environment on site.”

The school of pharmacy’s head, professor Nigel Ratcliffe, also recently awarded Janice Perkins (pictured on the left), pharmacy superintendent at Well, the title of Visiting Professor in Community Pharmacy.

“We are committed to providing our students with the most relevant, evidence-based training to equip them with the clinical and professional skills and experience they need to be successful pharmacists,” professor Radcliffe said.

“We are delighted to have the support of Well and the expertise of Janice on board, which provides that invaluable real-world experience our students need for career progression. I’m excited about some of the innovative projects we are working together on to shape the future of pharmacy education and practice.”
