Five new trustees have been appointed by Pharmacist Support, the independent charity for pharmacists and their families, former pharmacists and pharmacy students.

The new trustee – Catherine Harper, Paul Johnson, Esther Sadler-Williams, Neil Matthewman and Sarah Willis – have been appointed for three years. They join existing Board members Anita Cawley, Robbie Turner, Sunil Lakhani, Steve Riley, Steve Lutener and Sally Atkinson.

“This past year has been a challenging one for the charity” commented Chief Executive Diane Leicester-Hallam (pictured). “The unexpected passing of our Chair Prof Peter Noyce was difficult for us all.

“We are pleased to be moving into this New Year with new Board members and we look forward to working together to shape our support for those in the profession facing challenging times and to continue the vital work that Peter began in ensuring a financially sustainable future for the charity.”

Pharmacist Support has summarised the experience and skills or each of the new trustees.

  • Neil Matthewman is the former Chief Executive of Community Integrated Care – a charity providing a range of health and social care services to adults with learning disabilities.
  • Sarah Willis is a lecturer in social pharmacy at the University of Manchester where she chairs a Research Ethics Committee. Sarah was previously a research fellow for the Centre for Postgraduate Pharmacy Education and Manchester Pharmacy School where in 2013 she first became involved with Pharmacist Support, leading the evaluation of the charity’s Wardley Wellbeing pilot.
  • Paul Johnson is Professional Services Pharmacist at Buttercups Training Ltd, and is responsible for the management and development of the company’s pre-registration programme.
  • Esther Sadler-Williams has over 35 years’ experience in a variety of pharmaceutical roles (retail, hospital and industry), has established a number of businesses, and has also been involved in a number of pharmaceutical steering groups to drive change within the industry.
  • Catherine Harper is a freelance writer, having formerly been involved in teaching biology. “As the widow of a pharmacist she is acutely aware of the pressures those in the profession face and having benefitted from the charity’s support she is well aware of the impact services such as those provided by Pharmacist Support can have.”
