The Pharmacy in Practice editorial board is an advisory group who help to guide the direction of the content of this site. The role of the editorial board is vital to ensure that all materials produced are of the highest standard. Although the board members do not have direct input into the creation of the content they will help steer the future direction and give robust feedback when appropriate.
In the coming weeks, we will feature each editorial board member and showcase their career highlights.
