Aims and Objectives

To support and protect your reputation as you practice your profession and to improve the status and working environment of individual pharmacists to improve patient care.

Defending and articulating individual pharmacist's interests

Unparalleled changes in healthcare are providing pharmacists with new and exciting opportunities. The fact that pharmacists are beginning to play a more comprehensive role is to be welcomed; however it has to be recognised that, in so doing, pharmacists are becoming more and more exposed to new areas of risk.

Whilst these many developments are progressing at a rapid pace, individual pharmacist's interests and concerns are not always well articulated or considered. This leaves those who are at the leading edge of developments (and consequently the very pharmacists who are shouldering the main burden of that risk) feeling isolated, undervalued and often remote from the decisions that affect them.

The PDA will aim to address these issues by:

  • Supporting you in your legal, ethical and employment needs.

  • Providing insurance cover to safeguard and defend your reputation throughout your professional life.

  • Proactively seeking to influence the professional, ethical and employment agenda to support members.

  • Leading and supporting initiatives designed to improve the knowledge and skills of pharmacists in managing risk and safe practices, so improving patient care.

  • Working with like-minded organisations to further improve the membership benefits to individual pharmacists.
