Who we are



The Royal Pharmaceutical Society is the professional membership body for pharmacists and pharmacy in Great Britain.

We advance the profession of pharmacy for public and patient benefit to secure the future of the profession and our members.

What we do


We lead and promote the advancement of science, practice and education in pharmacy to shape and influence the future delivery of pharmacy driven services. We support and empower our members to improve health outcomes for society through professional guidance, networks and resources.

We do this by providing:

Support and development

We produce professional guidance and support tools to develop and supplement our members’ skills and knowledge. We work in collaboration with other royal colleges to develop guidance that supports effective patient care.

Professional recognition

We provide our members with professional recognition through the RPS Faculty, enabling them to gain recognition for their level of practice by employers, commissioners, patients and the public. Our expert members regularly appear in the media to ensure the public has the best information when medicines are in the news.


Local Practice Forums and online groups support groups of professional contacts allow colleagues to share experiences.


We ensure the voice of the whole profession is heard at the highest levels of healthcare and government through our responses to consultations, influencing policy development and through our expert advisory panels.


We provide healthcare professionals, students and scientists with the most trusted and usable data, information and therapeutic guidance on drugs and medicines.
