RSS Feeds

The Royal Pharmaceutical Society use RSS feeds to promote some of its regular online content. RSS stands for 'Really Simple Syndication' and the feed is basically a web page which contains basic information (such as title, date, and description) about our content and is updated in real time. The most common use of RSS is to display news items.

RSS feeds can be accessed by website browsers, desktop software (such as Microsoft Outlook), or RSS reader applications on smart phones. They are a great way to keep up-to-date with the latest updates from the Royal Pharmaceutical Society without visiting the website.
