Hospital Pharmacy Peer Groups

Our work in hospitals


We're supporting hospital members with their part in the NHS Long-term Plan/People Plan in England, the vision for pharmacy in Wales and Achieving Excellence in Pharmaceutical Care in Scotland.

We're advising and guiding on the implementation of RPS professional standards for hospital pharmacy services, as well as on the development of benchmarking metrics measuring service performance.

We are also influencing the development of the hospital pharmacy workforce from Pre-Registration trainee pharmacists to Foundation-level pharmacists, all the way up to consultant or chief pharmacists.
