Jonathan Burton has been elected as the Royal Pharmaceutical Society’s (RPS) Scottish pharmacy board chair.

He replaced John McAnaw, who has already stepped down in the role, the RPS announced yesterday (2 July).

Ewan Black was elected as the board’s vice-chair and affirmed as the Scottish board’s second representative on the RPS Assembly.

Mr Burton said: ‘It is an honour to be able to serve as chair of the Scottish pharmacy board.

‘The RPS undoubtedly does a huge amount of valuable work in promoting the profession of pharmacy and supporting pharmacists, but I recognise that many challenges still lie ahead in terms of how we deliver what our members need and want, and also how we communicate what we’re about to members and non-members alike.’

Last month (20 June), Claire Anderson replaced Sandra Gidley as chair of the RPS’s English board.
