Pharmacy professionals are invited to join this important webinar with senior leaders from the Royal Pharmaceutical Society, the Association of Pharmacy Technicians UK and NHS England and NHS Improvement.

Speakers include:

  • Dr Bola Owolabi, National Director for Health Inequalities, NHSE&I
  • Paul Bennett, Chief Executive, RPS
  • Richard Cattell, Deputy Chief Pharmaceutical Officer, NHSE&I
  • Liz Fidler, President, APTUK
  • Dr Keith Ridge CBE, Chief Pharmaceutical Officer, NHSE&I

The discussion will focus on:

  • How to make a meaningful difference?
  • What could be the drivers to make things better across different settings?

Over the last 10 months, the PDA has been involved in the collaborative programme which sees a wide range of organisations working together to develop a Joint National Plan for Inclusive Pharmacy Practice. This event concentrates on Theme 1, which is about leadership and representation.

Since publication of the Joint National Plan for Inclusive Pharmacy Practice on 10 March 2021, pharmacy professionals have been working to implement Theme 1 on Leadership and Representation which states:

  • As part of our professional responsibilities, pharmacy professionals at all levels and in all care settings should proactively ensure there is no tolerance of racism and racial discrimination in the workplace and work to improve fairness and equity in recruitment, promotion, leadership diversity, disciplinary and governance practices, in line with NHS People Plan goals
  • Pharmacy professional leaders at all levels in all care settings should where appropriate, embrace authentic allyship to improve their engagement with equality, diversity and inclusion
  • Develop a better understanding and appreciation of the benefits that ethnically diverse teams can bring to organisations including the better potential to deliver more culturally competent and aware healthcare
  • Proactively ensure the voices of colleagues of Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic origin are heard, valued, included as equal and considered when decisions are being taken in meetings, networks, committees and boards
  • Empower pharmacy team members to participate in inclusive networks and groups internally and externally.

The ‘Diversity and Representation in the Leadership of the Pharmacy Professions’ webinar will be taking place from 7 pm to 8.30 pm on Tuesday 6 July 2021.
