Applications open for the RPS’s QP eligibility panel of assessors

The Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS) has a vacancy for at least one assessor for its Qualified Person (QP) eligibility panel of assessors. Applications are invited from members of the RPS who have experience in a quality role including acting as a QP.
