Workforce planning

Stick figures holding hands

We provide the strategic leadership for pharmacy in Wales in developing workforce intelligence and planning activity which enables workforce transformation.

We are working to:

  • ensure the commissioning of pharmacy education and development meets the ambitions of Pharmacy: Delivering a Healthier Wales and the strategic objective of HEIW
  • improve the quality and completeness of multi-sector pharmacy workforce data (including leading on the development of definitions job roles and standardising terminology)
  • ensure there is appropriate development of planning skills in the pharmacy workforce across all areas of practice
  • provide analytical insight and intelligence which supports the development of the current and future shape of the workforce
  • optimise pharmacy visibility in Health Board and Primary Care Cluster planning processes with a clear narrative aligned to ‘Pharmacy Delivering a Healthier Wales’ and Wales Health and Social Care Workforce Strategy.
