Information for the Pharmacy Workforce

PWDS is working with HEE and other partners to provide a system-wide response to COVID-19.

We are working with our key stakeholders to support pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, trainees and the wider pharmacy workforce respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.

As the NHS mobilises to support increasing numbers of patients suffering from symptoms of COVID-19, we are working in partnership across the system to provide:

  • Guidance for pre-registration pharmacists and pharmacy technicians with their studies and next steps
  • Support for trainees on PWDS accreditation programmes, including reviewing face to face delivery models and assessments
  • Links to pharmacy materials to aid learning and up-skilling via the e-Learning for Health coronavirus programme
  • Links to workforce planning advice and support including facilitating the deployment of MPharm students wishing to support the pharmacy workforce
