Applications open for CPHB Associate Members

Thursday, February 7, 2019

Nominations for the CPS Elections are now underway. This means that CPHB Committees will have vacancies available for Associate Members for the new term 2019-2022. Any current Associate Members who are on committees can also apply for the position on the committees so that the newly elected committee can review all applications and make appointments.

We have received some specific enquiries from pharmacists who would like to apply for Associate Member positions, who are either on Maternity Leave or about to commence Maternity Leave. Pharmacists in this situation should follow the standard process for Associate Member Applications detailed below, ensuring current contact details are on the form.

If any Line Managers/Maternity Agents are aware of anyone on Maternity Leave who would like to make an Associate Member Application, please highlight this message to them.

This is a great opportunity to be involved in the pharmaceutical care and policy decisions in your health board area.

Each local Community Pharmacy Scotland committee can appoint up to 2 Pharmacist Associate Members to aid the functions and skills mix of the committee. Applicants, in conjunction with their employer, can apply to join the committee.

If you are interested in the role, this guidance document gives further detail.

If you would like to apply, please complete the application form and return to Emma Taylor.  Applications will close on the 25th February 2019.
