Pharmacists tell NHS that sector’s voice is ‘too fragmented’

Pharmacists tell NHS that sector’s voice is ‘too fragmented’. Firstly, the pharmacy profession suffers from “too much fragmentation”. Competing voices are weakening the sector’s ability to form a united front, an NHS-backed survey has heard.

The UK commission on pharmacy professional leadership. Launched by the UK’s four chief pharmacists earlier this year and published a report last week on a recent evidence-gathering exercise, heard there is a “common perception… that currently there is too much fragmentation within pharmacy leadership. With responsibility… split between several different professional leadership bodies and organisations”

One individual told the commission: “There are too many… bodies trying to make themselves heard for their part of the sector.

“What external bodies hear is a cacophony of sound with no organised messages.”

Furthermore, the survey received 1,243 responses from across the UK. Both individuals and organisations represented. Pharmacists accounted for 82 per cent of respondents with pharmacy technicians making up the remainder.
