Community pharmacies in Scotland are being asked to help complete a pharmacy workforce survey that will run from February 19-25. 


Community Pharmacy Scotland and NES Scotland have agreed the national survey which has been designed to “gain a better understanding of staff numbers and skill mix within community pharmacy in Scotland. The information obtained will be analysed and will help to inform pharmacy workforce strategy planning and development, ensuring we have the right workforce in community pharmacy to plan for the future,” said CPS.

Each NHS Board will coordinate the collection of local data, via Community Pharmacy Champions or Health Board staff. Pharmacy multiples which are members of the Company Chemists Association will provide data centrally for their Scottish pharmacies.

Data to be collected will relate to “pharmacists (plus those working centrally if appropriate), pre-registration trainee pharmacists, pharmacy technicians including trainees, and pharmacy support staff.”
