Catriona Sinclair FRPharmS has been invited to an international meeting of pharmacists in Madrid on May 5 to share experiences of community pharmacy from Scotland.
Pharmacists from across Europe have been invited to a prestigious roundtable, ‘International Experiences in Professional Pharmaceutical Health Services’ to share their own experiences of how pharmaceutical services are being developed in different countries.
Ms Sinclair is a member of Royal Pharmaceutical Society’s Scottish Pharmacy Board and owns SPA Pharmacy Ltd in Strathpeffer.
She plans to discuss the significant contribution of community pharmacy towards achieving improved health outcomes and reducing health inequalities for local populations.
Ms Sinclair said: "I’m honoured to have the opportunity to collaborate with pharmacists from across Europe, and to share my experiences of working as a community pharmacist in Scotland.
"Having worked as a pharmacist in both urban and rural settings for over 30 years, I have been privileged to witness the evolution of the pharmacy profession over the past few decades, and the hugely positive influence pharmacists make every day.
“Now a pharmacy owner in a rural setting, I am passionate about the role of pharmacy in tackling health inequalities, and in particular, remote deprivation. I look forward to presenting on this, and equally, meeting colleagues from across Europe and learning about their exciting and important work in pharmacy.”
