Pharmacists - We need to train more pharmacists, says chief pharmaceutical officer

The NHS is “making the case for an increase in training places for pharmacists,” England’s chief pharmaceutical officer David Webb has said.

Speaking at the Clinical Pharmacy Congress on Friday May 12, Mr Webb outlined NHS England’s “ambitious program of pharmacy workforce transformation,” including the recently announced Pharmacy First service, the growth of the independent prescribing agenda and workstreams focusing on medicines optimisation.

He said that in the long term these changes will “improve career progression and opportunities and benefit patients and communities,” but recognised that it “is very tough for all teams at the moment” and that the program will “take some time” to bed in fully.

Mr Webb said NHSE is “making the case for an increase in training places for pharmacists and [awaits] the long term workforce strategy,” which is expected to be published shortly.
