Lack of leadership and clinical skills are a 'barrier' to pharmacy investment, warns NHS England


@David: I think you have missed the point. No one is disinterested in training but tell me - in hospital do the individual pharmacists fund their own training? Do it in their own time? And, having qualified, receive zero benefit? Or is funded, with time allowed in lieu and is it the basis of professional career progression? None of this is the case in community pharmacy.. we have been stripped of resource and refused funding to train as independent prescribers . And when we self-fund the rewards are? A pay cut!
