I THINK pharmacy in Scotland has a bright future but the key lies in mobilising the talent in the profession.
I was so proud to read my letter in the Pharmaceutical Journal. If you have time, please have a read. If you are a Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS) member in Scotland, I would be humbled if you would take the time to vote.
If you are not a member, then perhaps you might consider joining. No-one will shape our profession for us, so being part of the RPS is our best hope. The RPS is there to help support your professional journey and has done nothing but encourage and support me so far.
Good luck to all the other candidates.
