RPS in Great Western Welcome to the home of the RPS in Great Western
Hi, I'm Cathy, the lead for RPS in Great Western.


RPS In Great Western 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.

RPS in Great Western provides 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 Great Western areas to get involved.

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

  • Dermatology
  • Revalidation 

We love working with other pharmacy organisations and hold regular collaborative events with the Centre for Postgraduate Pharmacy Education (CPPE).

Who we are

RPS in Great Western 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.

Some of the members of our group are:

  • Cathy Cooke - Secure environments pharmacist
  • Sarah Crawshaw - Teacher Practitioner
  • Tom Gregory  - GP Practice Pharmacist
  • Fiona Castle - CPPE Representative
