The GHP exists to defend the interests of individual employed pharmacists working in hospitals, primary care and other healthcare institutions for both the NHS and commercial healthcare providers throughout the UK. In times of great change and challenge, membership of GHP provides the individual pharmacist with a powerful voice, locally, nationally and across the UK. Our three main strands of work are:
- Supporting individual member pharmacists in the workplace regarding employment and practice related issues
- Negotiating, through the NHS Staff Council, the pay, terms and conditions of NHS employed pharmacists
- Actively promoting and supporting innovation and advancement of pharmacy practice throughout the NHS including providing education and development opportunities for pharmacists in line with their needs and those of the service.
