Previous communications

Since March 2013, Professional Matters no longer appears in the PJ in its traditional format, as we introduced a new weekly feature called Your RPS. Previous editions of Professional Matters will continue to be available to our members through PJ Online. 

Members can also download previous editions of Pharmacy Professional, which published its final issue in January 2011.
