Call for Industrial Pharmacy Advisory Group Members & Chair
Location: Virtual and/or face-to-face meetings will take place in London
RPS is the professional leadership body for pharmacists and pharmacy in England, Scotland and Wales. Our mission is to put pharmacy at the forefront of healthcare; our vision is to become the world leader in the safe and effective use of medicines.
Since the Society was founded in 1841 we have championed the profession and are internationally renowned as publishers of medicines information. Our Royal Charter gives us a unique status in pharmacy.
We promote pharmacy in the media and government, lead the way in medicines information, and support pharmacists in their education and development.
We are recruiting members and for a new Chair for our new Industrial Pharmacy Advisory Group (IPAG) which will replace the Industrial Pharmacy Forum in 2021.
Definition of Industrial Pharmacy
For the purpose of this group, industrial pharmacy includes all roles undertaken by pharmacists and pharmaceutical scientists within the pharmaceutical or allied industries (e.g. med-tech, FCMG, Consultancy) and those with an active interest in industrial pharmacy.
It also covers areas of practice/ work where industrial pharmacy expertise and influence is required to support the safe and effective use of medicines.
Membership of the group
Membership of the group is based on an individual’s own professional experience rather than them being representative of another group or their organisations. As such the group will be constituted to ensure that individual members have a wide breadth of experience. RPS has ultimate responsibility for the constitution of the group (please refer to the attached Terms of Reference).
Membership is open to Industrial Pharmacists and Pharmaceutical Scientists who are members of the RPS.
