Regional Committees

There are four regional committees in the UK. Each committee has representatives for community employees, hospital employees, locums and primary care / specialist pharmacists who represent the interests of those groups.


The committees hold three formal meetings a year and may also communicate by e-mail and social media. Each committee is made up of representatives from different areas of pharmacy practice – community, hospital, locums and primary care / specialist, so that all of these sectors of pharmacy are represented. The representatives have current and front line experience of the issues which affect you.

Representatives rely on you to let them know what is happening with you, so they can tailor their work-streams and agendas to meet your needs. So, if you have any questions, queries or suggestions, contact the PDA Union using the form below. We will respond to your communication, and if you wish, will consider your comments for the committee meetings and for referral to the PDA National Executive itself for further action.

If you have an enquiry or for more information on how to become a member of the Regional Committee, please complete the form below.
