CPS Elections

Between the 7th January and 28th January 2019, we are asking our independent pharmacy owner members to seek nomination for their local Community Pharmacy Health Board Committee.

If you are a pharmacy owner who wants to make a difference in your local area, this is a great opportunity to get involved. Our latest information on nominations, elections and results will always be available on this page.

Our local Committees are made up of elected members from independent pharmacies and also appointed members on behalf of the Company Chemists Association (CCA).

Standing for election to your Community Pharmacy Health Board Committee

To be eligible to stand, or nominate someone to stand, you must be a pharmacist who is a director, partner or superintendent in a company contracted to provide pharmaceutical services to the relevant Health Board.

Pharmacists wishing to stand require nomination from another eligible person (as above) from within the same Health Board area. The supporter should complete the online nomination form through the election website providing their own contact information as well as that of the nominee

The nominee will then receive an email advising them that they have been nominated, who has nominated them and asking if they wish to accept the nomination and stand. The nominee will then be asked to provide some further contact information.

CPS will verify both the supporter and nominee for each place on the local Community Health Board Committee.

Nominations are now open. The button below will take you to the nomination form.

Nomination Form

Once verification has taken place and nominations have closed at 23.59 on 28th January, CPS will complete overall verification of all information provided.

Local Election Results

On 31st January we will publish information of the CP(HB) committees where no elections are taking place (and will confirm the elected and appointed members making up these committees).

We will also announce the Health Board areas where elections are required. Each contractor within the Health Board who is eligible to vote in the election will receive an email with a unique voting identifier and will be able to cast their votes from 4th February until 9.00am on 25th February.

Formation of the CPS Council and elections for Chair, Vice-Chair and Board

Once our local committees have their elected members in place we ask them to put forward elected members to the CPS Council. These elected members alongside CCA appointed members make up the CPS Council (42 members). From our Council, a Chair, Vice-Chair and Board are elected. Further information on these elections will be provided nearer to the time.
