Pharmacy Patient Cafe – get involved

September 18th, 2020

The School of Pharmacy are looking for volunteers with a long term health condition to take part in the Patient Café.

The aim is to improve person-centred care by giving pharmacy students counselling practice and opportunities to interact with patients.

Sessions are student-led but supported by a dedicated team of academic and support staff. Participants would need to be willing to speak to a small group of students about their medication, how the condition affects day-to-day life and experiences of healthcare. The only requirement is that those who take part either currently have or previously had a health condition.


Participants will be joined by a maximum of 4 students who will conduct a 20-30 minute interview. These sessions will take place online via Microsoft Teams before transitioning to face-to-face sessions at some point in the future.

For further information on the project, and to register your interest, please visit the Pharmacy Patient Café website.
