Hi, I'm Calum Murray, the RPS In Your Area coordinator for Highland.
What we do
We deliver practice development and hot topic events in Highland.
We aim to support opportunities that meet the needs of all our members, from all professional backgrounds.
Working with the RPS team and local members, I:
- Coordinate the delivery of local events
- Develop RPS in Highland as the focus for innovation, inter and intra-professional practice development, quality in practice and research
- Support the development of RPS in Highland as an opportunity for networking, mentoring and engagement in RPS professional programmes
Over the past 12 months, our events have covered topics including:
- Chronic pain
- Unscheduled care
- Antimicrobial stewardship
If you have a project or a local initiative you would like to share at an RPS event, please email us at [email protected]
Who I am
My main role is as a primary care clinical pharmacist for NHS Highland, based at County Community Hospital in Invergordon. Previously, I was a community pharmacist working across the Highlands as a relief pharmacist before working in Broadford, Skye and Alness. I currently sit on the Highland Area Pharmaceutical Committee but I have previously sat on the Community Pharmacy Scotland contractor’s committee and supported fellow community pharmacy teams as a Community Pharmacy Practitioner Champion.
I have been the RPS local coordinator for Highland since 2018. I have a passion for providing quality training sessions and bringing the pharmacy sectors together.
How can I hear more from my local group?
