The Royal Pharmaceutical Society has designated four pharmacists in Scotland as its fellows in recognition of their services to the profession.

Pharmacists Paul Forsyth, Alasdair MacIntryre and Peter Mulholland were presented with their certificates at a recent celebration and networking evening at RPS Scotland’s building on Melville Street, Edinburgh, while the fellowship of the fourth pharmacist, Findlay Hickey, will be celebrated in 2023.

The evening also saw RPS Scotland director Clare Morrison and General Pharmaceutical Council Scotland director Laura Fulton welcome a group of newly qualified pharmacists to the profession.

Commenting on the evening’s celebration, Morrison said: “It was an absolute pleasure to welcome pharmacists to our building in Edinburgh, the home of pharmacy in Scotland. The mood was so vibrant as people came together to celebrate and to network.

“There is brilliant work being achieved by pharmacy teams across the whole of Scotland right now, and everyone being celebrated has contributed immensely to this.

“I was thrilled to be able to welcome newly qualified pharmacists to our event, and to welcome them to our profession. This year, we published Pharmacy 2030, our new professional vision for the future of pharmacy in Scotland and it’s so exciting to see newly qualified pharmacists coming though who will be working towards delivering the improved patient outcomes, safety and experience set out in our vision.”

The new RPS fellows join twenty-four RPS fellows across Great Britain who were announced as having been awarded RPS Fellowships earlier this week.

The society currently has 797 Fellows from across the profession, representing a variety of sectors and career stages.
