Pharmacy professional leadership has never been so important. Significant changes in the profession affecting pharmacy technicians and pharmacists are anticipated both now and in the future. We need to ensure the professions are well equipped, with a voice to help shape the future, and enabled to develop through sharing and learning from best practice.

The UK Commission on Pharmacy Professional Leadership launched a call for evidence survey, which ran from 17 August to 28 September 2022. The responses informed the Commission’s recommendations.

Thank you to everyone who took part in the survey and shared your views, the published report is now available to view here.
