Thank you for participating in the validation of the attributes framework for foundation pharmacists.

The Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS) and Health Education England (HEE) are leading a new project to analyse the roles of pharmacists in the early years of their careers. The RPS expects to use the analysis to underpin and guide the design and review of a UK wide Foundation Pharmacist Framework that will inform professional capabilities to be tested at the point of entry, during development and upon completion of training programmes. 

HEE will use the analysis to inform its pharmacy education and training review which is currently underway.

A broad spectrum of views and evidence has been gathered that span geography, sector and employer as part of a first phase of the role analysis. The next stage of the process is to validate the attributes and behavioural descriptors included within a draft framework by gaining wider feedback on the importance of the identified criteria.

Your participation therefore in the validation of the initial framework will help to inform the results of the role analysis and help to define future foundation pharmacist training and assessment.  We greatly value your input and contribution into this important work.
The survey will be available for completion until the 11th March 2019 and will take approximately 20 minutes to complete.

If you encounter any problems or have any comments on the survey, please contact Emma-Louise Rowe on

Information you provide will remain anonymous and your contribution will be kept confidential, with responses reported at the group level in final reports.
