Pharmacists who are independent chemists and members or officers of these LPCs are eligible to stand for election as the new regional representative. An independent chemist is defined in the PSNC constitution as a chemist operating retail pharmacy businesses’ from no more than nine premises in England from which NHS Pharmaceutical Services or Local Pharmaceutical Services are provided and a person who is not a member of the Association of Independent Multiple pharmacies (AIMp).

The following PSNC briefing sets out the election process and the actions required by those seeking to stand for election.
