Give your feedback on our new five year strategy

RPS President, Ash Soni OBE FRPharmS, launched our new five year strategy for 2016 - 2021, last night at our 175th anniversary event in London.

The RPS Strategy 2016-2021 sets out our six strategic goals for the next five years. It has been developed by members of the RPS Assembly in collaboration with the three National Pharmacy Boards, and was officially adopted by the Assembly at their 6 April 2016 meeting.

Our ultimate goal is to improve patient care. We are committed to developing pharmacists and aiding other healthcare professionals to use medicines more efficiently and effectively.

Based on our five years’ experience as a dedicated professional body, we have refined our purpose and developed six strategic goals that describe where we plan to be by 2021, if not before. These goals are a natural extension of much of the work we are already doing and will help us on our journey to becoming a Royal College.

We are now working with our members, stakeholders, and patients to create a plan of how we can work together to achieve the goals set out in our strategy. You can send us your views by emailing
