RPS England responds to Spending Round

Commenting on today's Spending Round announcement from the Chancellor of the Exchequer, Chair of the RPS in England Claire Anderson said:

“We welcome the Chancellor’s recognition of the importance of funding education and professional development and look forward to seeing further details. 

“Delivering the NHS Long-Term Plan will now require a comprehensive and adequately-funded workforce strategy to support recruitment, training and education. This will need to look beyond a one-year spending round.

“As the NHS aims to develop an adaptable and flexible workforce, it will be vital to ensure that pharmacists can access consistent and quality-assured professional development wherever they may work. This should be underpinned by a common foundation programme for all newly registered pharmacists.”
