Gidley re-elected as EPB chair

Sandra Gidley (left) has been re-elected as chair of the Royal Pharmaceutical Society’s English Pharmacy Board. Sharon Buckle (right) was elected as the board’s vice-chair.

David Carter, Sultan Dajani, Mahendra Patel and Ash Soni, alongside the chair, vice-chair and sitting president Martin Astbury, were elected to the RPS Assembly.

Following her re-election, Ms Gidley said: “I am looking forward to working with the whole of the board and RPS team to deliver on our ambition for a greater role for pharmacists across healthcare.

“I recognise that for both hospital and community pharmacists, recent reforms and funding reductions have had a big impact on meeting this ambition. The English Pharmacy Board will not shy away for asking for investment in both community and hospital pharmacy as we know both of these services are vital to the health of the public.

“We know much more needs to be done and will ensure that the new Government sees the benefit of a sustainable network of community pharmacies in the coming year.”
