BOPA Committee would like to congratulate Jackie Lewis on her award
Unafraid to explore areas traditionally outside the remit of community pharmacy, Lewis Pharmacy has made a huge difference to its local community. Its service to cancer patients is a prime example of this approach. Despite cancer typically being the domain of secondary care, the pharmacy team has been determined to make a difference to this group of patients. Not only does it offer in-depth MURs to customers on cancer-related medication, it has also worked with the hospital, local charities and GPs to offer a seamless network of support.
Well done Jackie!Read More
The RPS Faculty has just celebrated its two year anniversary, and as an affiliated partner BOPA continues with development of curricula. The cancer curriculum has been reviewed to include mastery level, in line with other RPS curricula, by the BOPA credentialing & professional development subcommittee. This specialist curriculum should be used alongside the Advanced Pharmacy Framework.
