Campbell Shimmins

Campbell Shimmins, Board Member

I graduated from Strathclyde University and have been an independent proprietor pharmacist since 1993. I have been a Director of Albapharm and subsequently Inphaserve since 2003. I was also a member of Forth Valley Area Pharmaceutical Committee from 1995 until 2007, and a member of Forth Valley Pharmacy Contractors Committee (CPS Forth Valley) since 1995. I have also recently been elected to Fife Contractors' Committee (CPS Fife).

Since 1999 I have been the Chairman of Forth Valley Pharmacy Contractors Committee and recently been reappointed as Chairman for the next session. I have also been a member of Community Pharmacy Scotland since 1999. I qualified as a supplementary prescriber in 2004, and the first community pharmacist prescriber and since 2006 an Independent prescriber.

I was a member of the National Pharmacy Forum and have been an active member of the Community Pharmacy Scotland Board from 2004 until 2012, standing again in 2016 as my role within my own businesses now allows the commitment that the potential election to the CPS Board requires.
