Data collection for the 2018 Pharmacy project is now open

We are delighted to launch the 2018 Pharmacy & Medicines Optimisation project run by the NHS Benchmarking Network. This is the fourth iteration of the project and builds on last year’s project, in which over 170 organisations took part.

The project has been developed and refined from participant feedback and professional bodies such as the Royal Pharmaceutical Society, NHS England and NHS Improvement.

The project covers a wide range of aspects relating to pharmacy, including: medicines spend and usage; workforce and resourcing; service models and delivery; clinical pharmacy; and quality and good practice.

Participants will be able to access an array of outputs, including:

  • A bespoke report highlighting your organisation’s position
  • A national summary report identifying trends between years
  • Access to the online toolkit providing dynamic and interactive outputs
  • Attendance at our national findings conference with keynote and best practice speakers

Data collection

Data collection is completed online. The data collection window will run from 4th June – 4th August. For further information, please contact Dave Barker, Assistant Project Manager at or call 0161 266 1335.
