We're committed to being disability confident

You told us in our recent survey that disability is the biggest barrier to working in pharmacy, and is also the most important area where more could be done to support inclusion and diversity in the services the profession provides. 

This is also important to RPS as an employer. So, we’ve committed to improving how we recruit, retain and develop people with disabilities by signing up to the Government’s Disability Confident scheme.

The scheme supports employers to make the most of the talents people with disabilities can bring to the workplace.

RPS Chief Executive Paul Bennett said: “On the UN International Day of People with Disabilities we’re proud to have pledged to become Disability Confident. We want to remove barriers and make sure people with disabilities have opportunities to fulfil their potential with us. It’s all part of our plans to improve inclusion and diversity at the RPS and across the profession.”

Your dedication and commitment during the pandemic has been exceptional.

As we brace for a potential second wave of coronavirus, we know that pharmacy will be at the forefront of delivering healthcare.

Whether it’s flu vaccinations, dealing with local lockdowns or getting ready to fight a second wave, we need decisions and assurances from the Government now. We must make sure pharmacists get enough supplies of PPE and rapid access to testing in all care settings.

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 you, none of this will be possible.
