Judith Vincent MRPharmS (Chair of All Wales Chief Pharmacists Committee)
"The Chief Pharmacists welcome the recent update to the RPS standards for Hospital pharmacy services.
To date the standards have proved to be a valuable tool, providing a framework to support the development of services in a consistent manner, promoting high quality care across the care sectors.
The standards have supported benchmarking and provided Chief Pharmacists with useful information to assist with workforce planning, models of service delivery and identifying areas for improvement.
Importantly, the standards assure our patients that they are receiving a safe and quality service from the pharmacy profession."
