Centre for Pharmacy Workforce Studies


The Centre for Pharmacy Workforce Studies (CPWS) undertakes commissioned research on the workforce, the labour market, and on organisational change and development within the pharmacy profession.

Our work is designed to influence policy and practice and to inform the wider debate on employment, professional work in pharmacy, education and training, and workforce effectiveness.

The Centre was established in January 2004 and is part of the Drug Usage and Pharmacy Practice Group in the Division of Pharmacy and Optometry at The University of Manchester.

Pharmacists and professional research staff work side by side to develop and undertake commissioned research, and provide evidence-based consultancy and workforce intelligence.

Our research findings appear in scholarly and academic journals, but we also publish accessible reports, blogs, and newsletters for policy makers, pharmacy employers and pharmacy professionals, and for other users interested in work, employment, and pharmacy labour market issues.
