Jonathan Burton MBE elected as Chair of the Scottish Pharmacy Board

The executive team of the Scottish Pharmacy Board has today been agreed. Jonathan Burton MBE was elected as Chair of the Board. He takes over from John McAnaw, who has stepped down from the role.

Ewan Black has been elected as Vice-Chair of the Board and affirmed as the Scottish Pharmacy Board’s second representative on the RPS Assembly.

Jonathan Burton said: “It is an honour to be able to serve as Chair of the Scottish Pharmacy Board. The RPS undoubtedly does a huge amount of valuable work in promoting the profession of pharmacy and supporting pharmacists, but I recognise that many challenges still lie ahead in terms of how we deliver what our members need and want, and also how we communicate what we’re about to members and non-members alike.

“I look forward to working with my colleagues on the Scottish Pharmacy Board and the wider RPS team to make sure the Society is doing it’s very best for our members and the profession.”
