About the centre
The Centre for Pharmacy Workforce Studies undertakes commissioned research on the workforce, the labour market, and on organisational change and development within the pharmacy profession.
Our work is designed to influence policy and practice and to inform the wider debate on employment, professional work in pharmacy, and workforce effectiveness.
We can provide workforce data, data on pharmacy students, and we also undertake evidence-based consultancy.
The centre's research focuses on the pharmacy labour market in its widest sense, and includes applied research on a range of pharmacist and support staff employment issues.
