Health Education England (HEE) is inviting over 11,500 community pharmacies to participate in the first ever national survey looking at training and development needs across the workforce in order to inform the commissioning of clinical education and development for community pharmacy teams. The survey will collect key information around training requirements, recruitment experiences and working patterns of staff.

Professor Elizabeth Hughes, director and dean of education and quality HEE (London and South East), said: “This survey will enable us to fully understand the scale and skill set of the community pharmacy workforce, and help us to ensure we plan our future investment in education commissioning effectively.”
