The voter turnout for the Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS) England this year has dropped to 7.3 per cent.

Out of a total 18,333 eligible voter only 1,336 voter elected Danny Bartlett to the vacancy on the English Pharmacy Board.

This year, four nominations were received for one substantive place on the English Pharmacy Board.

One nomination was received for a single vacancy on the Welsh Pharmacy Board. Richard Evans has been elected unopposed to the vacancy on the Welsh Pharmacy Board.

There were no vacancies this year on the Scottish Pharmacy Board. Therefore, no election was required for the Welsh Pharmacy Board nor the Scottish Pharmacy Board.

Sarwat (Sorbi) Khattak has been elected for a period of one year to fill the casual vacancy.

RPS President Professor Claire Anderson said: “Congratulations to Danny and Sorbi who were elected to the English Pharmacy Board, and to Richard who was elected to the Welsh Pharmacy Board. I look forward to working with them to champion the profession and put pharmacy at the forefront of healthcare.

“I’d also like to thank the other candidates who stood for election but were not successful on this occasion.”

The new Board members will take up their places at the next National Board meetings in June.
