The Wales Centre for Pharmacy Professional Education (WCPPE) is launching an online survey into Welsh community pharmacy technician roles.

The aim of the survey, which will go live in the week beginning 29 January 2018, is to increase understanding of the role, including the enablers and barriers to role development. The survey results will be used by WCPPE to inform future programme development for community pharmacy technicians.

Respondents may complete the survey anonymously, but those who wish to take part further can opt in for a follow-up telephone interview.

Rebecca Chamberlain, education officer at WCPPE, said it “would like to encourage all community pharmacy technicians in Wales to respond, to ensure that the results are an accurate representation of roles across Wales.

“This is an important project that has the potential to inform future development of the pharmacy technician profession within Wales,” she said.

The survey will be emailed by the General Pharmaceutical Council on WCPPE’s behalf. The deadline for completion of the survey is 30 March 2018.
