RPS in Shropshire and Staffordshire

Welcome to the home of the RPS in Shropshire and Staffordshire

Karen Anne Gunnell, lead of RPS in Shropshire and StaffordshireHi, I'm Karen, the lead of RPS in Shropshire and Staffordshire.

RPS in Shropshire and Staffordshire gives you the chance to develop and support fellow pharmacists who live and work nearby, as well as an opportunity to build a professional network.

We provide a chance for face-to-face meetings outside of a work environment, raising the profile of pharmacy with a variety of groups, organisations and individuals.

What we do

We aim to deliver events and support opportunities that meet the needs of all our members, from all professional backgrounds.

We usually hold our events on the University campus or in a city central location, but often move to other venues to allow members from all areas of Shropshire and Staffordshire to get involved.

Over the past 12 months, our events have covered topics including:

  • Revalidation
  • Benzodiazepines 
  • Patient Safety

We love working with other pharmacy organisations and hold regular collaborative events with the Centre for Postgraduate Pharmacy Education (CPPE).  We also work closely with our Schools of Pharmacy in the area to inspire and support pharmacy students, right from the very start of their career.

Who we are

RPS in Shropshire and Staffordshire is supported by a dedicated group of volunteers and all have one thing in common; they all want to put pharmacy on the forefront of healthcare.

Members of our group are:

  • Karen Anne Gunnell
  • John Gentle 
  • Maria Allinson

  • Tania Cork
  • Gill Hall
  • Julie Shenton
  • Clare Stott
