RPS in West Yorkshire

Welcome to the home of the RPS in West Yorkshire
Hi, I'm Gill and I'm the lead for RPS in West Yorkshire


RPS in West Yorkshire 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 hold most of our events on the University of Bradford or University of Huddersfield, but often move to other venues to allow members from all areas of West Yorkshire to get involved.

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

  • Mental Health
  • Revalidation 
  • Patient Safety.
  • Pain Management
  • Pharmacy Integration and NHS developments

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