COVID-NOW Oncology Workforce Study Open


Dear BOPA members,

Please take the time to complete this survey exploring the well being of NHS oncology staff during the COVID pandemic.  As key members of the multidisciplinary team, it is really important that the experiences of Pharmacy Professionals are reflected in this work, and that our voices are heard.  The survey is open until 28th June.

Thank you in advance
