Locum community pharmacists’ experiences and perceptions of their work

Research output: Contribution to journalMeeting Abstractpeer-review


Previous work has examined motivations for undertaking locum work and the demographics of locum community phar- macists [1,2] but little is known of the experiences they encounter during their work. This study aimed to explore locum community pharmacists’ experiences and perceptions of their work. It encompassed the work pressures that affect locum community pharmacists, their views of their role and how they perceived their work environment. This paper focuses on aspects of the interviews that explore locum phar-macists’ views of the nature of being an employed pharmacist that made them turn to locum work.
