The Foundation Pharmacy Technician Role Analysis survey is now live!

Thank you for your continued support with this important research project, led by the Association of Pharmacy Technicians UK (APTUK) and Health Education England and funded by the Pharmacy Integration Fund.

We warmly invite you to take part in the Foundation Pharmacy Technician Role Analysis national validation survey. The survey is live between 24 January and 9 February.

We want to hear what you think the professional attributes of a foundation pharmacy technician should be by taking part in this national survey. Anyone with knowledge of the foundation (early years) pharmacy technician’s role is welcome to take part.

Work Psychology Group (WPG), who are delivering the work with support from the Royal Pharmaceutical Society, will use these research findings to further refine the professional capabilities to be developed during training. The research will help APTUK design a UK-wide Foundation Pharmacy Technician Framework across the UK and across sectors
