Working Parties of the BPSA

The BPSA sets up Working Parties to tackle a specific task that may require wider input from the membership and alumnus, and also for tasks that will take longer than one Executive year to complete. This allows the Executive to focus on their roles and moving the whole Association forward while allowing more complex tasks to be completed in a timely manner.

Details of the currently active Working Parties are presented here, along with details about how to find out more about their work and any opportunities to get involved in their work.

Regulations Working Party

Significant changes have happened within the pharmacy profession over the past three years and it is important that the BPSA stays abreast of these changes. In order for the BPSA to become reactive to these changes a review of the constitution and regulations was ordered. The Regulations Working Party is currently working to modernise the regulations, which define what we offer our members.

The Regulations Working Party presents its work at Annual Conference along with a list of recommended changes. The membership scrutinise these recommended changes and vote through final changes to the Association’s regulations, which become active after conference.

IT Working Party

The IT Working Party was set up in 2010 and was tasked with developing the IT services of the BPSA. This included increasing the social media presence of the BPSA but also working on a brand new website for the BPSA, which was launched at the 71st Annual Conference. The IT Working Party continues to make changes to the new website and adding functionality for members and visitors.

Representatives Working Party

In recent years the BPSA membership has increased significantly from 3,000 to over 13,500 members.  Such increase has put an additional pressure to the BPSA Executive as well as the BPSA Reps meaning that the high demands of our members cannot be met efficiently. Thus, the Reps Working Party was formed to look into the current model and modernise it in order to improve the relationship between the Executive and the Reps, reduce the workload of the Area Coordinators and empower the Reps.
