Applications open for CPHB Associate Members

Thursday, July 16, 2020

At CPS, our Community Pharmacy Health Board committees are at the forefront of local service negotiation. Currently, a number of our CPHB Committees have vacancies available for Associate Members for the term 2019-2022.

The committees with posts available are:

  • Borders
  • Fife
  • Highland
  • Lothian
  • Orkney
  • Shetland

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 Stephanie Menzies by the 14th August 2020. This has been extended from the previous deadline of 31st July.

We have also in the past 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.
