This study investigated the views of pharmacy technicians from hospital, primary care trust and community pharmacy on Foundation degrees. A qualitative exploration determined that participants saw Foundation degrees as a vehicle for the development of the roles of pharmacy technicians and, within this study, common experiences related to achieving this were shared. Favourable changes to self-esteem and approach to practice were identified based on the new skills and knowledge gained.
