“I am delighted to announce that Laura Fraser has been appointed as our Director for Scotland. The open recruitment campaign led to a strong field of candidates, and Laura’s experience across community pharmacy and more recently with the Scottish government will be an asset to the GPhC. I am looking forward to taking forward a number of key work programmes with Laura, ensuring that Scottish perspectives and stakeholder voices are represented across our work.
