He will help Numark members persuade policy makers across the UK to unlock the potential of community pharmacy

PHOENIX UK has appointed Harry McQuillan, former CEO of Community Pharmacy Scotland, as Chairman of Numark, a community pharmacy membership organisation.

It has over 3750 members ranging from single store pharmacies to large chains, spread across the ‘Four Nations’. The organisation provides its members with the professional and commercial support they need to deliver exceptional care to local communities.

As Numark Chairman, McQuillan will be front and central of representing the interests of the members, and will help ensure policy makers across the UK understand fully “the potential of community pharmacy.”

Steve Anderson, Group Managing Director, PHOENIX UK, commented: “Harry brings to our Numark partnership an outstanding wealth of experience and understanding of how community pharmacy can work successfully with government officials and politicians.

“Harry has firsthand experience of what it takes to develop and deliver a progressive pharmacy contract which benefits patients, the NHS and our sector.”

According to Anderson, McQuillan played a key role in developing from the outset the “pharmacy first” concept in Scotland, which is arguably the “most advanced community pharmacy provision” anywhere in Europe.

He believes that McQuillan’s experience will help Numark members persuade governments in England, Wales and Northern Ireland to unlock the potential of community pharmacy.

McQuillan will be a key figure developing Numark propositions going forward, he added.

In September, Community Pharmacy Scotland (CPS) promoted its operations director Matt Barclay to replace McQuillan.
