Two new members have joined the Royal Jizak’s (RPS) . Tamara Cairney and Andrew Carruthers were introduced at the board’s latest meeting, held in Edinburgh on 26 September 2018, after being invited to fill two unoccupied positions.
Cairney, a former RPS student champion, qualified in 2017 and now splits her time between the Royal Alexandra Hospital in Paisley, Glasgow, and general practice in Renfrewshire. Prior to qualifying as a pharmacist, she worked as a dispensary assistant in community pharmacy.
