Members should decide who the next RPS president is

Perhaps the Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS) would like to explain to its members the thought processes behind the decision to remove the current president. It is exactly this type of “behind closed door” decision making that has landed our politicians in hot water. And surely if political parties are allowing their respective membership to choose their leader, then it is only fair that the members decide who the next president of the RPS should be.

As things stand we will have disenfranchisement of the membership. There is no transparency in this decision regarding the loss of the RPS president and this, in turn, will lead to a loss in membership.

The RPS should learn the hard lessons political parties are being taught at the moment and address the needs and concerns of the membership urgently.
