What our members say...

“This is amazing! Who knew we had access to all of these books? Very pleased with this unexpected benefit for members.”

“A GP colleague asked how to stop and then switch antidepressants - checked list of eBooks RPS gives free access too as part of membership, and Maudsley Prescribing Guidelines in Psychiatry is one. Allows you to download a free pdf chapter! Well worth @rpharms membership!”

“I got a few tips from one of the RPS librarians on the online resources, how to do searches etc, they are super helpful if you’re a bit of an IT numpty like me.”

We need your support.


Your dedication and commitment during the pandemic has been exceptional.

As we brace for a surge of coronavirus infections, we know that pharmacy will be at the forefront of delivering healthcare.

Whether it’s flu vaccinations or dealing with local lockdowns we need decisions and assurances from the Government to make sure our profession can cope. We must make sure pharmacists get enough supplies of PPE, rapid access to testing in all care settings, and the recognition you deserve.

You told us that our leadership and resources during in the early months of the pandemic were of critical importance. We are now updating our highly valued COVID-19 resources and training webinars to make sure they reflect current - and changing - guidance.

If the enormous mental and physical strain of the past few months is repeated ahead of this winter, the health service will be on its knees. We will be there to make sure pharmacists get mental health and wellbeing support.

We will continue to work hard to give you the tools and guidance to do your job safely. And fight to make sure you get the recognition you deserve.
We are proud to support you. But without members, none of this will be possible.

Become a member and help us do even more.
Joining costs just 60p a day. And means that, whatever the future holds, we will be here for you, so you can support the public and patients.
