About us

We look after the interests of individual pharmacists. We defend you when you are faced with a conflict, and we proactively lobby the individual pharmacist’s agenda.

The Pharmacists’ Defence Association (PDA) is a not-for-profit organisation which aims to act upon and support the needs of individual pharmacists and, when necessary, defend their reputation. We are an organisation that is run by pharmacists for the benefit of pharmacists.

The primary objectives of the PDA are:

  • to advance and protect good health by promoting proper standards and best practice in pharmacy;
  • to support the safe and effective practice of pharmacists at every stage of their education and career;
  • to provide leadership and representation for employed and self-employed pharmacists, and those in training;
  • to protect, defend, lobby for and support the interests and reputations of pharmacists;
  • to work with and support local, national and international organisations with similar objectives; and
  • to facilitate professional indemnity insurance, arrange benefits and undertake any other activities that can support our wider objectives.
