Society's grant funding from Government far outstrips that of other health regulators

Grant funding paid to the Royal Pharmaceutical Society by the Department of Health far outstrips the sums given to other health regulators, as revealed in a Parliamentary written answer last week. The Society has questioned the figures.

Mike Weir (SNP, Angus) was told that the Society received more than £5.5m this financial year. The General Dental Council received £235,000 and the Nursing and Midwifery Council £762. All other health regulators received no DoH funding.

The Society’s director of public affairs, Beverley Parkin, said: “Ican confirm the Society did not receive the level of grant funding for each ofthe three years that was published in Hansard in written answers for 17 January2006. We have informed the Department of Health that we believe these figuresto be inaccurate and we have asked for clarification and for it to be corrected.”
