Retired Pharmacists

<p>The Retired Pharmacists Group extends a warm welcome to all RPS members who have retired from practicing pharmacy but retain an active interest in the pharmacy profession. It also welcomes those who are gradually winding down their work commitments and wish to interact with their retired colleagues. The Group functions as a virtual network and forum for discussions and also through face-to-face meetings and events. </p>
