Developing the pledge

We developed the RPS Inclusion and Wellbeing Pledge in discussion with the profession, listening to pharmacists, pharmacy technicians the wider pharmacy teams about the issues that affect them, the challenges they face, and what needs to change.

A series of focus groups, open to member and non-members, as well as our Action in Belonging, Culture and Diversity (ABCD) and Workforce Wellbeing Action Groups, highlighted key issues such as culture, leadership, working practices and support.

We also heard from stakeholders that will be crucial to making change happen, bringing together more than 20 organisations from across the profession including unions, employers, the NHS, regulators, pharmacy schools and students.

Who is the pledge for?

This pledge applies to ALL that work in pharmacy - if you're part of the Pharmacy team this pledge applies to you.

Pharmacy teams are made up of different members, including pharmacy technicians and support staff. All members of the pharmacy team play an important role, and we need to ensure everyone feels welcome regardless of role and background.

The principles of the pledge will be underpinned by guidance on adopting policies and good practice in the workplace.
