The UKCPA awarded their third prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award on 20 November 2010 to Chris Acomb, a Clinical Pharmacy Manager at Leeds Teaching Hospital where he helped set up meetings to influence how hospital clinical pharmacy could be transferred into community practice.
Chris’s teaching role with pharmacists spans the grades (Preregistration, Diploma, Masters and Doctoral Level).
As well as teaching, he supports and encourages these pharmacists to develop their research skills and empowers them to write up and publish their research.
Chris is a role model and mentor to many community and hospital pharmacists.
Together with his contribution to UKCPA over the years, most recently as chair of Trustees, he has been recognised as an outstanding contributor to clinical pharmacy practice and the profession.
Chris said: “The UKCPA Lifetime Achievement Award means an immense amount to me. To be honoured by your peers is the greatest accolade.”
