There has been much talk in recent years about workforce and workforce planning to enhance the provision of current and future healthcare roles. Pharmacy is no exception. It is clear there are multiple documents and shapers discussing the need for integrated planning and education. However, there appears to be no mechanism in place to achieve this. Many forms of education are available to pharmacists, both locally and nationally, through multiple providers. New models of training and preferences are currently being explored to optimise learning opportunities. Clear and blended structured ongoing development strategies need to be implemented as essential enablers for pharmacists to embrace the new roles available. These strategies need to be holistic, across the multiple providers to reduce variance and duplication. Such development pathways are vital for the future success of the workforce.
