The Pharmacist editor Carolyn Scott commented that the survey would help shape reporting at a transformative time for the pharmacy sector.

She said: ‘Our reporting consistently shows us that this is a critical time for the pharmacy sector, with changes like independent prescribing, practice-based pharmacists and an increasing number of clinical services being developed in community pharmacies set to transform the industry.

‘At the same time, we know that pharmacists are facing challenges such as workload, finances and recruitment.

‘We want to capture the mood of the sector at this point in time, so that we can report accurately on how pharmacists are feeling, the challenges they are facing and the opportunities they see going forward. Thank you for taking a few minutes of your time to send back the survey.’

The survey is open to all UK pharmacists and pharmacy owners and takes just a few minutes to complete.

The answers to the survey can be anonymous, and respondents won’t be identified in the reporting unless they would like to be.

Respondents are also invited to leave their contact details for the chance to be entered into a prize draw to win £100 in John Lewis vouchers.
