Last chance to take part in Pharmacy Pressures Survey


Community pharmacy contractors and their teams are reminded to share their experiences in PSNC’s Pharmacy Pressures Survey.

In mid-January PSNC launched two surveys to gather more data on the pressures that everyone working in community pharmacy is under and the impact that this is having. We have had a really good response so far with some useful data emerging, but we want to make sure as many pharmacies as possible are represented in the results.

This is the final call to take part, with the surveys due to close at 23.59 on Monday 7th February 2022.

The findings will be used to highlight the situation the sector is facing in our ongoing discussions with NHS England & NHS Improvement (NHSE&I) and the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC). We will also use them to help us to continue to make pharmacy’s case in conversations with MPs and other external stakeholders.

The surveys are both as short as possible and should take around 15 minutes to complete.

There are two separate surveys for:

  1. Pharmacy business owners/head office representatives
    This survey covers the pressures being experienced by businesses, looking at the overall running of the pharmacy business including financial and staffing pressures. Please note that only one representative from each pharmacy business should complete this survey – please check this is the case before doing so.
  1. Pharmacy teams
    This survey covers the day-to-day pressures experienced by pharmacy teams including supply chain issues, patient interactions/experience and staff morale.

Independent contractors or pharmacy owners who also work day-to-day in a pharmacy are encouraged to complete both surveys.

We very much appreciate your support in completing these surveys, particularly at this very busy time.

Support the call for more funding by recording the informal advice you provide over just one day.
