Marks a significant milestone in the pharmacy sector’s commitment to nurturing its pharmacy family

The Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS) and Pharmacist Support have announced a formal agreement aimed at enhancing collaboration to better support RPS members and increase the impact of the charity.

This partnership comes after years of working closely together, and formalising it will allow both organisations to reach a wider audience and focus on supporting the wellbeing of pharmacy professionals.

The aim of the partnership is to establish a visible link between the professional body and the independent charity to increase awareness about the two organisations for greater focus on the support within the sector.

Along with this, the key objectives also include identifying fundraising opportunities for Pharmacist Support, and collaborating on specific wellbeing projects.

RPS Chief Executive Paul Bennett emphasised the shared commitment to advancing the profession and supporting members, stating that the agreement strengthens existing collaboration and “opens avenues for deeper engagement and joint initiatives to empower pharmacists and contribute to the wellbeing of pharmacy professionals.”

Chief Executive of Pharmacist Support, Danielle Hunt, echoed these sentiments, highlighting the partnership as a significant milestone in supporting the pharmacy family.

She emphasised the collaboration’s role in advancing the wellbeing of pharmacists and their families, building on initiatives like workforce wellbeing surveys and roundtable events.

Hunt expressed excitement about officially joining forces and working together to bring about a cultural shift that enhances sector wellbeing.

Additionally, she looks forward to furthering fundraising activities with the RPS and its members to ensure continued support for “the pharmacy family”.

The formalisation of this partnership signifies a strategic move to align efforts and resources, ultimately benefiting pharmacy professionals and advancing the profession as a whole.

With a renewed focus on collaboration and shared objectives, the RPS and Pharmacist Support are poised to make a meaningful impact on the wellbeing of the pharmacy sector.
