Twenty-five pharmacists across Scotland were honoured by the Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS) Scotland for doing ‘inspiring work’ both pre and post pandemic.

A special recognition, the Charter Award, was given to Dr Rose Marie Parr, who served as Chief Pharmaceutical Officer for Scotland until Summer 2020. This award recognises work done by an individual for the Society and the wider profession in promoting the interests of pharmacy at an outstanding level.

Seventeen pharmacists were awarded with Fellowships of RPS for distinction in the practice of pharmacy. Five pharmacists were awarded consultant credentials for their high level of expertise in their area of practice.

The Chair and Vice Chair of the previous Scottish Pharmacy Board were also recognised for their hugely positive contribution to pharmacy and RPS across Scotland.

Speaking about the event, Andrew Carruthers, Scottish Pharmacy Board Chair said: “It was fantastic to welcome everyone to our event tonight and to celebrate the hard work, achievements, commitment to professional development and dedication to the future of pharmacy that everyone being celebrated has shown.

“In particular I’d like to mention the enormous contribution which Rose Marie has made to pharmacy across Scotland and beyond, and I’m delighted this has been recognised with the awarding of the prestigious Charter Award.”

Commenting on the evening’s celebration, Clare Morrison, Director for Scotland at RPS said: “Every person recognised here tonight has done outstanding work on behalf of the pharmacy profession.

“RPS Scotland has just published Pharmacy 2030, our new professional vision for the future of pharmacy in Scotland. Knowing how many inspirational pharmacists we have across Scotland leading the way, gives me so much encouragement and optimism that we can collectively implement the ideas in our vision; which will ultimately deliver enhanced patient outcomes, experience and safety.”
