Many of you have had to rapidly implement novel solutions to new (and existing) issues and have demonstrated great commitment and ingenuity in order to maintain and improve patient care. Most of these innovations and changes in practice have been well received and have provided more streamlined services or improved efficiencies within the system. However, some have meant that Pharmacy Teams have had to accept less than ideal conditions in order to keep patients and staff safe during the COVID pandemic.
We are asking our members to help us understand these new ways of working and what aspects you plan to keep as we move to restoration and recovery and business as usual. Working with the RPS, we are asking our members to support this short survey to find out:
- Which changes which you have implemented during the SARs-CoV-2 pandemic that you would like to keep, and why?
- What activities have stopped or “paused” as a result of the pandemic response, that you believe we should not reinstate?
- Which changes you have found were not as successful as intended, and why?
