Process announced for East Midlands and South Yorkshire Regional Representative election
The process to elect a new PSNC Regional Representative for the East Midlands and South Yorkshire region is now underway.
The region covers Barnsley LPC, Derbyshire LPC, Doncaster LPC, Leicestershire & Rutland LPC, Lincolnshire LPC, Nottinghamshire LPC, Rotherham LPC and Sheffield LPC. Pharmacists who are independent chemists and members or officers of these LPCs are eligible for election as the new regional representative.
A briefing has been written to explain the role of regional representative, the election process, actions required for those seeking to stand for election and timescales. The first stage is a call for expressions of interest between 6th and 21st July 2021.
This election was triggered following the resignation of Garry Myers last month. PSNC would like to thank Mr Myers for his contributions to PSNC and community pharmacy and to wish him all the best for the future.
