Community Pharmacy Workforce Development Group
The Community Pharmacy Workforce Development Group (CPWDG) is a cross-sector working group hosted by the CCA that brings together the expertise of education and training leads from across the community pharmacy sector. The Group discusses how to ensure the community pharmacy workforce is fit for the future and to present a united front where possible to key stakeholders.
The Group seeks to positively influence national programmes and approaches to revalidation on behalf of the whole sector. It has equal representation from the CCA, National Pharmacy Association (NPA) and Association of Independent Multiple pharmacies (AIM).
The Group provides a forum for representatives to share ideas, intelligence and best-practice on issues that affect the capacity and capability of the entire community pharmacy workforce. Its meetings provide an opportunity for representatives to discuss cross-sector policy positions and recommendations, develop consultation responses and influence policy outcomes.
