You will now have received your ballot paper in the post for the upcoming PSI council elections. I would appreciate your #1 vote.
My main reason for running for council is a desire to make a meaningful contribution to the profession. I am an employee community pharmacist, and have been for nearly a decade. I would hope to bring to the council a strong understanding of the practicalities the implementation of legislation has on us as community pharmacists at a local level. We need to stand up and be heard. I am confident that I will be that voice as a strong advocate for community pharmacists and their patients.
The PSI’s role is to ensure that pharmacy services are delivered in a competent, professional and ethical manner, in an appropriate environment, to the highest standards of quality, care, and best practice, ensuring the well-being of patients and the public. Having undertaken a Masters in Healthcare Ethics and Law in RCSI, I can bring this experience to the council table in ensuring that we meet our mandate.
I will be a voice for pharmacists around the country regardless of their practice area. I will represent those who have no contact on the council to guide them on issues relating to the council and it’s remit.
