A leading pharmacist and member of the Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS) Scottish Pharmacy Board, Catriona Sinclair has been chosen to share her experiences of working in a community pharmacy in Scotland.
Catriona Sinclair FRPharmS will speak at a roundtable entitled ‘International Experiences in Professional Pharmaceutical Health Services’ in Madrid on Thursday (May 5).
Catriona, who owns and runs a pharmacy in the Highlands, is expected to give her take on community pharmacies’ significant contribution towards achieving improved health outcomes and reducing health inequalities for local populations in Scotland.
As an active independent prescriber, she is at the cutting edge of the profession in Scotland.
Speaking ahead of her visit to Madrid, Catriona said: “I’m honored to have the opportunity to collaborate with pharmacists from across Europe, and to share my experiences of working as a community pharmacist in Scotland.
“Having worked as a pharmacist in both urban and rural settings for over 30 years, I have been privileged to witness the evolution of the pharmacy profession over the past few decades, and the hugely positive influence pharmacists make every day.
“Now a pharmacy owner in a rural setting, I am passionate about the role of pharmacy in tackling health inequalities, and in particular, remote deprivation. I look forward to presenting on this, and equally, meeting colleagues from across Europe and learning about their exciting and important work in pharmacy.”
