The Constitution of the local Health Board committees of the organisation was amended last year. The new constitution was used to form the new committees which will now be referred to as ‘Community Pharmacy [insert Health Board area]’. The CPHBs are the voice for contractors in their health board area. They also provide the first step to involvement with CPS at Council and Board level.
After a review it was decided that for the first time pharmacist Associate Members of the organisation will be given the opportunity to be involved formally with the local committees. Many areas now have associate members on their committee.
