CPP promises support for new pharmacy body

The College of Pharmacy Practice and the wider Waterloo Group of pharmacy organisations will continue to contribute to the process of creating a new professional body for pharmacy “in whatever way we can”, college chairman David Morgan said last week.

As an immediate first step, the college has decided to establish a wider reference group to support those appointed from within their ranks to the Transitional Committee.

Responding to criticisms in the pharmaceutical press by former Society president Hemant Patel and current Council member Douglas Simpson, Mr Morgan said the letter from the Society’s Chief Executive and Registrar Jeremy Holmes published in The Journal “very fairly reflected the views of the College and the Waterloo Group” (PJ, 7 June 2008, p688).

“We are trying to be open and transparent; we have been using the normal democratic processes,” Mr Morgan told a discussion forum on the new professional body before the college’s annual general meeting. “The first Waterloo agreement was very supportive of the Society; the second was supportive of the 64 recommendations in the Clarke Report.”

Mr Morgan said he recognised the need for considerable further debate, and he looked forward to the work of the Transitional Committee, in which he hoped the college would be involved in some way.
