Steve Churton has been re-elected as the President of the Royal Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain.
Prof Nick Barber was elected as Vice President and John Gentle was re-elected as a Treasurer.
In accepting his re-election the President highlighted the achievements of the Society and reaffirmed his vision for the establishment of a professional body in which members could take pride and for the safe transfer of the regulatory responsibilities from the Society to the GPhC.
Addressing Council, the President said:
“I am as proud to be a member of this profession now, as I was on the first day that I registered over 30 years ago. I can only hope that I have been able to make a difference, and played my part in securing a sustainable and influential future for our profession.
During my time as President I have felt both honoured and proud that individual members of the profession and the fantastic people who work so hard on our behalf, have seen fit to place their trust in me.
I remain very grateful to those colleagues here today who continue to demonstrate their loyalty and support for me, and for what I am trying to achieve, by electing me once again. It means a great deal personally, and I will not let you or the profession down.”
