Six pharmacists based in Scotland were acknowledged by the profession this week during a celebratory event held at the home of Scottish pharmacy, the RPS building on Melville Street, Edinburgh.

Four pharmacists have been officially conferred with Fellowships of RPS for their significant contributions to the practice of pharmacy. The recipients are:

  • Richard Lowrie
  • Lynn Morrison
  • Deborah Steven
  • Audrey Thompson

Two pharmacists, Katherine Davidson and Emily Kennedy, have attained accreditation as consultant pharmacists. This designation is granted in recognition of their demonstrated expertise at a senior level, spanning clinical practice, leadership, research, and education, RPS said in a statement.

“Welcoming four new Fellows this evening and celebrating Emily Kennedy’s consultant pharmacist accreditation is a great pleasure,” said Christine Bond, Chair of RPS Panel of Fellows. “Each of our new Fellows has demonstrated exceptional service to the pharmacy profession throughout their careers. The Royal Pharmaceutical Society is poised to gain valuable insights, experience, and reflections from them as they embark on this new chapter as a Fellow of the Society.”

Laura Wilson, Director for Scotland at RPS, extended thanks to all those recognised for their longstanding commitment and contribution to the profession. “This event provided a platform to acknowledge the outstanding work of these individuals,” Wilson added. “It was especially heartening to witness newly qualified pharmacists celebrating with us tonight. Congratulations to them, and I wish them success as they embark on their careers.”

Nine recently qualified pharmacists also joined the event, all eager to begin their careers in various pharmacy settings, RPS added.

RPS Scotland and Marie Curie recently collaborate for a Scottish Parliament exhibition this week, spotlighting Daffodil Standards and the vital role of community pharmacies in palliative and end-of-life care.
