Pharmacist takes key role brokering NICE accreditation for RPS AuthorICPDate05 May 2017Category Clinical TagsClinical Service Development With dual roles at National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) and the Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS), the University of Huddersfield's Dr Mahendra Patel has been able to broker an accreditation that will play a key role in ensuring high prescription standards by pharmacists. Dr Patel, Principal Enterprise Fellow in Pharmacy at the University of Huddersfield, is vice chair of the NICE Accreditation Committee and a board member of the Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS). This meant he was in an ideal position to persuade the twin organisations to meet and discuss the value of accreditation. “I initiated the process, but at that point I stepped away because of my clear conflict of interest,” said Dr Patel.
