RPS Antimicrobial Expert Advisory Group welcomes new Chair

We are delighted to announce that Dr Jacqueline Sneddon has been elected new Chair of the RPS Antimicrobial Expert Advisory Group (AEAG).

Jacqueline responded to her election stating: “I am delighted to be taking over from Harpal as Chair of the RPS Antimicrobial Expert Advisory Group and look forward to working with group members from across the four UK nations to continue to provide advice to RPS on AMR matters but also to increase engagement of pharmacists from all sectors in antimicrobial stewardship.”

Chief Executive of the RPS, Paul Bennett, said: “I am delighted to welcome Jacqueline as the newly elected Chair of the RPS AEAG. Jacqueline has been a highly valued member of the group since 2015 and she brings a wealth of expertise, experience and networks that will continue to benefit the RPS AEAG and our profession.”

“I am also very thankful to Harpal Dhillon for his Chairmanship over the past 3 years and for his and the group’s support and advice in developing our Antimicrobial Resistance and Stewardship campaign, launched last year.”
