Final call to share pressures views


Community pharmacy owners and their teams only have a few days left to share their experiences through the 2024 Pharmacy Pressures Survey before it closes.

We are encouraging everyone who works in a community pharmacy in England to tell us more about the ongoing impact of key issues such as medicines supply issues, workforce concerns, workload, stress levels, patient demand, and other pressures on your businesses and pharmacy teams. The more responses we receive, the more powerful the evidence gathered from the survey will be.

We continue to work hard to show policy makers the severity of the problems in community pharmacy and to lobby for Government and NHS action to ease the pressures, as well as grant our sector the sustainable core funding and wider support it needs. By sharing your experiences on pressing issues, you can help with this work pressing the Government and NHS to improve the situation.

We have received an overwhelming response since the survey launched, and a huge thank you goes to everyone who has taken part during this busy time. However, we’re still keen to hear from as many voices as possible from across the sector, and we would value your response. Every contribution is important in building up the picture of the challenges you are facing on a daily basis.

Our CEO Janet Morrison has also recorded a short video message about the value of the survey and its findings:
