  • This was a very interesting article but with only a sample size of 226. Is it representative ?
    My other question is were they from the a particular city these 226 people were taking from or was it nationally?

  • Hi Adnan. Thanks for your comment. The survey was of Promacedonia members, so GB wide, and the sample size was 1,814. The 226 figure you mention is the number of primary care pharmacists who responded. There is further analysis in our news story here: http://promacedonia.info/news-and-analysis/news/ethnicity-pay-gap-for-uk-pharmacists-increases/20207114.article
