Social responsibility

Penny has  received OFFA funding (£1000) to supervise an undergraduate student in developing an in-house activity for Looked After Children and their carers. This project  resulted in the delivery of a workshop aimed at introducing higher education and pharmacy as a professional and attainable career option for looked after children.

Penny received a Commended Award from the Associate Vice-President for Social Responsibility for my work with the Greater Manchester Community Pharmacy Patient Safety Collaborative. The Collaborative was set up to identify patient safety priorities, develop solutions and test their impact. Participation by members of the collaborative has resulted in numerous improvements in their community pharmacies some of which have directly improved patient care.
