Future pharmacy workforce project brief
A project brief of our future pharmacist workforce review aimed to deliver:
- a robust baseline of the current pharmacist undergraduate and pre-registration trainee numbers, and an evaluation of future trends
- horizon scanning and scenario generation to consider the impact of changes to pharmacist and pre-registration trainee numbers, changes to pharmacy education and system-wide changes that may impact on supply or demand in the workforce
- recommendations to the DH on student numbers and any imbalance between student numbers, provision of training places and the number of pharmacists required to deliver services for NHS patients through to 2040.
