Chief executive Danielle Hunt: It is important to us that we remain relevant

The profession’s charity Pharmacist Support is investigating what pharmacists want from them ahead of plans to develop a new strategy.

The first major survey in 10 years by the charity seeks the views of pharmacists nationwide from all sectors, including former pharmacists, MPharm students and pre-registration trainees.

Pharmacist Support is also conducting a series of one-to-one interviews to “understand the issues facing those in the profession today, to establish gaps in support” and decipher “what those in the profession want from the charity moving forward”.

In 2008, the charity’s research led to and informed the relaunch of The Benevolent Fund of the Royal Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain into Pharmacist Support.

“So much has changed in this time,” explained chief executive Danielle Hunt. “We felt it was imperative we went out to the sector to gain crucial feedback and insight to inform our new strategy.”

“It is important to us as a charity established and funded by pharmacists that we remain relevant and able to meet the changing needs of the sector,” she added.

The 15-minute survey will be available to complete until Sunday, May 26 and can be accessed here
