The PSNC will shortly begin formal processes to seek a new East Midlands and South Yorkshire regional representative following the resignation of Garry Myers (pictured far right) from the committee yesterday (May 17).
Eligible independent contractors from the relevant LPC areas will be invited to express their interest in the role and then, if an election is triggered, to vote to select their new regional representative in due course.
Mr Myers’ resignation follows 16 years as a committee member and will trigger a number of processes at the negotiating body including the selection of a new independent member of the negotiating team to join existing independent members Bharat Patel and Gary Warner.
Chief executive Simon Dukes said: “Over an impressive 16 years as a regional representative Garry has been a tireless member of many important PSNC subcommittees and working groups, and in all arenas he has been a passionate advocate for the more clinical future for the sector that we all want to get to. We wish him well.”
Pharmacy Network News has approached Mr Myers for comment.
