Mandatory Workforce Survey reminder

Mandatory Workforce Survey reminder

Numark would like to remind our members of the mandatory requirement to complete the 2022 Community Pharmacy Workforce Survey, managed by Health Education England (HEE), by 30th November 2022.

The survey is very similar to the previous two surveys (undertaken in 2017 and 2021), with questions about the number and full-time equivalent (FTE) number of ten different types of staff (including pharmacists, trainee pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, dispensing assistants, medicines counter assistants and delivery drivers). The survey also asks about any trainees in the pharmacy.

Health Education England has produced some guidance notes to help with completing the survey, this can be accessed below:

Survey Guidance Notes

Pharmacy contractors should have been contacted via email at the beginning of October 2022 by the NHS Business Services Authority (NHSBSA) with a link to complete the survey online. If you think your pharmacy did not receive an email invitation to complete the survey from the NHSBSA, please email
