Community Pharmacy Workforce Survey 2023
In September 2023, NES Pharmacy, with Community Pharmacy Scotland (CPS), will be co-ordinating another national community pharmacy workforce survey - to gain a better understanding of staff numbers and skill mix within community pharmacy in Scotland.
The information will be analysed and will inform pharmacy workforce planning and development, ensuring we have the right workforce in place now and can take action to ensure that demand is met in the future.
The data for independent community pharmacies will be gathered via an online survey and each pharmacy will be encouraged to identify a single person to collate this information. The survey will come to the pharmacy mailbox.
Multiple and group pharmacies
The data for multiple and group pharmacies will be gathered via an individual from within that multiple or group and this information will be captured using a standard spreadsheet. You will receive more information in due course.
A snapshot of the community pharmacy workforce
The survey has been designed to capture a snapshot of the community pharmacy workforce including:
- pharmacists (plus those working centrally if appropriate)
- locum pharmacists
- pre-registration trainee pharmacists
- pharmacy technicians including trainees
- pharmacy support staff
During the week, Sunday 10 September to Saturday 16 September 2023.
