Kathleen Cowle MRPharmS
Scottish Pharmacy Board
Having joined Boots in 1995 as an undergraduate, I completed my degree at Strathclyde University in 1996 and my preregistration training the following year. I have held numerous Pharmacy Support and Management roles throughout my career where I have had the opportunity to train, develop and support other Pharmacists within the organisation.
I joined the Forth Valley (FV) Contractors Committee in 2004 and became a member of the CPS council in the same year. I am the current Chair of the Area Pharmaceutical Committee in FV and I also have a seat on the Area Clinical Forum, Locality Pharmacists Group and the FV Pharmacy Performance Review Group. A key success of the APC has been our ability to represent Pharmacy across all sectors when invited to local multi professional events.
I joined the Scottish Management Group in 2014 and have taken part in small working groups and national events when the opportunity has arisen to promote the development and inclusion of community pharmacy.
I have always been a member of the RPSGB and was delighted to be elected to the Board in June of this year.
