The Pharmacist War on Shortages survey

Dear reader,

Welcome to The Pharmacist's War on Shortages survey.

We're on a mission to increase Government transparency around stock shortages. But we need your help. We need to hear how shortages are affecting your business to gather evidence of the severity of the problem.

Please note the results of this survey will be reported in aggregate terms in future coverage from The Pharmacist and you will not be quoted by name without your consent. Please enter your email address at the end to be entered into the draw to win £50 of John Lewis vouchers.

Many thanks,
Beth Kennedy
Editor, The Pharmacist
