Update on RPS proposed Executive structure

Commenting on a proposed change to the Executive structure, RPS President Professor Claire Anderson said:

“I deeply regret seeing so much speculation in the public domain about a proposed change to the Executive Team when no decision has yet been made, and feel for those involved. 

“This is an organisational decision, as it is about operational matters. RPS finances are on a secure footing and this proposal is not about cost savings. We intend to continue our investment in education and professional leadership for the future of the pharmacy profession.

“Our excellent and dedicated teams will continue to advocate on behalf of the profession across all sectors and areas of practice, including education, workforce issues, independent prescribing and inclusion and diversity. In particular, our work on education, including post-registration curricula, assessment and credentialing, workforce planning, leadership development and mentoring are strategically important to our profession, right from undergraduate level through foundation to advanced and consultant practice. We are completely committed to maintaining this work and should the proposal go ahead, there would still be a leader on the Executive with responsibility for delivering on our education strategy.

“To be fair to the individuals involved, and to protect the confidentiality of the process, we will update again once decisions have been agreed. Therefore, we won't be commenting further on this issue."
