Applications open for CPHB Associate Members

Tuesday, May 28, 2019


Following our recent elections, some CPHB Committees still have vacancies available for Associate Members for the new term 2019-2022. Any Associate Members who served for the 2015-2018 tenure and missed the first round of applications can also take this opportunity to apply for the position on the new committees. 

Previously, we have received some specific enquiries from pharmacists who would like to apply for Associate Member positions, who are either on Maternity Leave, or about to commence Maternity Leave. Pharmacists in this situation should follow the standard process for Associate Member Applications detailed below, ensuring current contact details are on the form. 

If any Line Managers/Maternity Agents are aware of anyone on Maternity Leave who would like to make an Associate Member Application, please highlight this message to them. 

This is a great opportunity to be involved in the pharmaceutical care and policy decisions in your Health Board area. 

Each local Community Pharmacy Scotland committee can appoint up to two Pharmacist Associate Members to aid the functions and skills mix of the committee. Applicants, in conjunction with their employer, can apply to join the committee. 

There are currently vacancies for Associate Members in the following Health Board areas: 

  • Ayrshire & Arran
  • Borders
  • Dumfries & Galloway
  • Fife
  • Forth Valley
  • Greater Glasgow & Clyde
  • Grampian
  • Highland
  • Lothian
  • Orkney
  • Shetland
  • Tayside
  • Western Isles

If you are interested in the role, this guidance document gives further details. To apply, please complete the Associate Member application form and return to Stephanie Menzies

Applications will close on Friday 21st June 2019.
