Pharmacy technicians have been invited to give feedback on their pre-registration training by the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC).

The regulator has launched its first survey into the schooling of pharmacy professionals as part of a three-year project to scrutinise key trends and issues.

Technicians that joined the register between November 2014 and October 2016 have been asked to comment on their experience.

Duncan Rudkin, chief executive of the GPhC, said:  “This survey will help us to build a greater understanding of the experiences of pharmacy technician trainees, so everyone involved in their training can consider how to improve their training and the support they receive.

“The results will help inform ongoing discussions about pre-registration training for pharmacy technicians and ensure that any changes we make in the future are based on the best available evidence.”

The findings will be released in summer 2016.
