RPS welcomes consultation on supervision in pharmacies

RPS crest

We welcome the announcement from the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) of its long-anticipated consultation on supervision in pharmacies.

Our previous extensive engagement with members helped create our policy position statement, Strengthening Pharmacy Governance, which outlines the principles which should apply to any legislative change to facilitate the provision of progressive and safe pharmacy services within the context of an advancing NHS.

RPS has actively participated in the Pharmacy Supervision Practice Group, contributing to the collaborative report, Supervision in community pharmacy, alongside other pharmacy organisations.

We encourage all members to share their insights and perspectives on the consultation by emailing [email protected]. We will build on these together with the expertise of our board members, who serve as elected representatives, to further shape our response to the DHSC consultation.

RPS is committed to advancing the pharmacy profession and looks forward to playing a constructive role in the ongoing dialogue on supervision in pharmacies.
