Royal Pharmaceutical Society

Disappointing turnout

I was disappointed to read that only 9.33% of eligible Royal Pharmaceutical Society members voted in England in the recent national pharmacy board elections (PJ 2014;292:562).

The figure was double in Scotland and Wales. If those who have paid to join the RPS do not seem to care, how can we convince others to join us? The whole of the RPS, including local practice forums and pharmacy board members, need to work harder to engage with pharmacists. For example, social media could be used a lot more than it already is. Let us not let ourselves down next year.
