RPS Charter Award presented to Ade Williams

Bristol community pharmacist Ade Williams has been awarded the RPS Charter Award in recognition of his exceptional contributions to pharmacy and patient care.

Mr Williams was presented with the award yesterday (June 18) by RPS chief executive Paul Bennett and president Claire Anderson.

As director and superintendent pharmacist of MJ Williams Pharmacy Group in Bristol and lead prescribing pharmacist at the multi-award-winning Bedminster Pharmacy, Mr Williams has consistently demonstrated pharmacy’s role in providing comprehensive and affordable healthcare solutions for the community, said the RPS. 

In 2022, he was awarded an MBE for his service to the NHS. He is also prescribing pharmacist at Broadmead Medical Practice and was recently appointed as a trustee of the General Pharmaceutical Council.

Mr Williams also frequently contributes to national and regional media, helping to explain the role of pharmacists in patient care.

Paul Bennett said: “Ade’s outstanding contributions to both the RPS and the wider pharmacy profession exemplify the highest standards of commitment to improving pharmacy practice and patient care.”

Claire Anderson added: “Ade’s hard work and dedication have made a big difference in patient care and public health. [His] efforts in promoting vaccination access and supporting the community during challenging times highlight his commitment to the profession.”

Mr Williams said: “Receiving the RPS Charter Award is profoundly humbling. The trust and confidence the public places in pharmacy teams inspire us, especially me, to strive daily to make a difference within and beyond the confines of pharmacy premises.

“I owe an irredeemable debt to all community pharmacy colleagues, especially my team at Bedminster Pharmacy. Our collective dedication and sacrifice frames pharmacy’s narrative as stalwarts of the NHS and garners the deep affection in the many communities who have adopted us into their hearts.”
