Dr Ailsa Power FRPharmS FFRPS
Vice Chair, Scottish Pharmacy Board
Since qualifying, Ailsa has worked in community, hospital and in academia. She has now been at NHS Education for Scotland (NES) Pharmacy for 14 years. Along with the rest of the team, Ailsa provides continuing professional development to pharmacy practitioners including educational support for any new services in Community Pharmacy; she is also involved in the management and development of the NES pre-registration scheme and Foundation Vocational Training in Scotland. Ailsa’s role has a national remit which involves routine travel around Scotland - meeting practitioners and RPS members from all areas of practice.
Ailsa is involved in projects with both the Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS), The Older Peoples Working Collaborative and with the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) (Leadership in Primary Care). She believes that she has a good knowledge and understanding of national developments and workings in all sectors, and is able to effectively network to collate the problems, worries and opportunities for members.
