Pharmacists in Scotland have been asked to share their views on what politicians need to be made aware of ahead of the Scottish Parliament elections in 2016.

The Royal Pharmaceutical Society in Scotland set up an online survey asking RPS members describe the issues they are facing and what they think needs to change to enable pharmacists to ‘be the best you can be’.

“Next year’s Scottish Parliament elections give us a great opportunity to highlight to parliamentary candidates how pharmacists contribute to improving patient care and patient outcomes,” said the Society. “It also gives us the opportunity to set out the ‘wish list’ for our profession over the next few years. We are therefore currently drafting our manifesto and need your help in shaping it.

“It is vital that we get as many responses to our survey as possible so that we are confident we are representing our members’ views and experiences and so that politicians and other stakeholders are clear as to what is needed to allow pharmacist to fully contribute to patient care.”

Although the online survey was scheduled to run from December 1 to 6, the RPS in Scotland said that members wanting to discuss ideas in more detail could get in touch via email at This email address is being protected from spambots.
