Gazette notice — 2021 national pharmacy board elections terms of office

At the meeting held on 18 November 2020, Assembly members agreed that any national pharmacy board member whose term of office had originally expired in June 2020, but was then extended for a further year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, should, if elected to the board in 2021, only serve a term of office of two years.

The following amendments to the Society’s regulations will therefore take effect from 1 February 2021. Any member who wishes to comment to the Assembly on the changes is asked to do so by 26 January 2021. Comments should be sent to

Regulation 7.4.2 will be amended as follows (addition in italics):

The period of office of members elected to the National Pharmacy Boards shall be three years with the exception in 2021 of any Board Members whose term of office originally expired in 2020 but was extended by 12 months due to the COVID-19 pandemic, whose term of office upon re-election in 2021 shall be two years; and expire at midnight on the day before the effective date detailed in the Election Scheme in the third year after they were elected.
