Meet our 2022 Scottish Pharmacy Clinical Leadership Fellows
Four new Pharmacy Fellows join the 2022 Scottish Pharmacy Clinical Leadership Fellowship (SPCLF) scheme announced today by NHS Education for Scotland (NES).
The scheme aims to provide NHS Scotland with the next group of senior pharmacists and pharmacy technicians who are committed to pharmacy development and have enhanced capability to offer strategic leadership in their workplace and at national and international level.
This is the fifth cohort of fellows. They will work on projects related to advanced practice for Pharmacy within different clinical pathways, digital capability/e-prescribing, and drug related deaths during their fellowship year.
The four fellows (pictured left to right) are:
- Douglas Lynn (Broughton Pharmacy, Edinburgh)
- Wendy Carswell (NHS Lothian)
- Lorna Hammond (NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde)
- Niamh Morrison (NHS Lothian and Community Pharmacist)
Susan Roberts, Associate Postgraduate Pharmacy Dean, NES, said:
“I’m delighted to launch the 5th year of our Scottish Pharmacy Clinical Leadership Fellowship and welcome Douglas, Lorna, Niamh and Wendy. They will be working with dental and medical fellows and build networks that last a career whilst developing as a leader undertaking the leadership and management programme we deliver.
“As the health and care system recovers and remobilises strong clinical leadership is more crucial than ever. Technology and workforce transformation are the two key drivers for change. The fellows will be focusing their projects on digital prescribing pathways, reducing drug deaths and workforce transformation through developing advanced practice pharmacy roles that will contribute to managing direct patient facing capacity. Our fellows will strengthen their skills during their year and help deliver the transformation that’s required in the future.”
The Scottish Pharmacy Clinical Leadership Fellowship scheme (SPCLF) was launched in 2018. Since then, it has evolved and has successfully supported the development of future pharmacy leaders and taken forward strategic objectives to improve the pharmaceutical care of patients in Scotland.
