Professional Empowerment Group

Why support Professional Empowerment?

Moving from campaigning on workplace pressure to working towards professional empowerment is more than just a name change.

The national pharmacy boards have mandated the organisation to find real and long-term solutions to the unacceptable pressure some pharmacists find themselves under.

The objectives of this group are to:

  • To understand the findings from the impact of the RP regulations research and consider the practical recommendations RPS has suggested
  • To work with relevant stakeholders, and colleagues to affect change in the areas indicated in the report
