Hello, I would like to introduce myself as the new Director of the RPS in Wales. Some of you will know me already as I have been working as Principal Policy Advisor at the RPS for the last ten years. For the past few weeks, whilst the rain has whipped itself against the windows of the RPS Wales office, the Welsh Pharmacy Board and RPS Wales’s staff have been busy planning the work programme for the coming year and how, through our work, we can best support you as members.

What topics and authors you would like to be covered in future blogs? Please email our Communications Officer, Kirsty.luff@rpharms.com  with any ideas, or record your views publicly below.
