Benjamin Hannan, director of reform and transformation at NHS Fife, has been honoured with the prestigious title of Fellow of the Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS), marking a significant milestone in his career.

Hailing from Falkirk, Hannan is the youngest Scottish Fellow in the society’s history, a testament to his exceptional contributions to the field of pharmacy.

The fellowship, a distinction bestowed upon members who have demonstrated remarkable achievements in advancing pharmaceutical knowledge or have shown exceptional distinction in pharmacy science, practice, profession, or history, is a recognition of Hannan’s dedication and expertise in the field.

Expressing his gratitude, Hannan told The Faulkner Herlad, “I am delighted and humbled to have been made a Fellow of the Royal Pharmaceutical Society.”

“This honor highlights the exceptional environment at NHS Fife, where I am privileged to work alongside dedicated professionals,” he added.

Hannan’s journey to this esteemed recognition includes his education at Wallace High School in Stirling and his graduation from the University of Strathclyde.

He furthered his qualifications with postgraduate diplomas and degrees from renowned institutions such as Queens University Belfast, the University of Sunderland, and the University of Birmingham.

Joining NHS Fife in February 2020 as the chief pharmacist for acute services, Hannan swiftly rose to leadership roles, displaying vision and innovation in transforming pharmacy services.

His recent appointment as the director of reform and transformation underscores his commitment to driving positive change within the healthcare sector.

In addition to his RPS fellowship, Hannan has also been honored with a Fellowship of the Institute of Leadership and Management, recognising his exemplary support, management, and development of others.

The announcement also includes recognition for 19 other members designated as Fellows of the Royal Pharmaceutical Society, each celebrated for their outstanding contributions to the profession.

Notably, Moody Meng has been posthumously awarded a Fellowship, honouring his remarkable legacy in pharmacy.

With Hannan’s induction, the Society‘s fellowship now counts 783 distinguished members, representing various sectors and career stages within the pharmacy profession.
