The UKCPA was delighted to award their prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award on 4 November 2016 to two members: Professor Mike Scott and Mr Duncan McRobbie.

 

For over 30 years Professor Mike Scott has worked both as a hospital pharmacist and researcher, publishing extensively as well as supervising MSc and PhD students. He has been a pioneer in providing a robust evidence base for developing clinical pharmacy services, not only in his home of Northern Ireland, but nationally and internationally. He is known for his relentless energy and passion for developing clinical pharmacy and his work has been central in influencing the development of medicines management and clinical pharmacy services across the UK and Europe.

 

A previous Chair of UKCPA, Duncan McRobbie has been described as an innovator, a clinician and a role model. He has impacted on clinical pharmacy services locally, establishing the residency service at Guy’s & St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust, which grew into the STEP programme, and introducing the preregistration OSCE system in the South East region. His national influence is demonstrated through his being a founder member of CoDeG, the group which developed the competency frameworks that are now the foundation of the RPS professional recognition structure at both Foundation and Faculty level. Individually, he is described as an inspirational clinical practitioner, and is greatly respected for his work within the GSTT cardiology team, always putting the patient at the centre of care, and supporting his colleagues to achieve their potential through good humour and the need for work-life balance.

Ann Page, Chair of UKCPA, says, “At the UKCPA Conference this year I was honoured to present the UKCPA Lifetime Achievement Award to two people who have really achieved excellence in the pharmacy profession. Practitioners and their patients have benefitted both directly and indirectly from the lifetime of work that these individuals have achieved and we are delighted to be able to recognise their accomplishments.”
