Thank you for your interest in the UK Black Pharmacists Association (UKBPA). We are a group of black pharmacists with a shared vision to support pharmacists, pre-registration pharmacists and pharmacy students who identify as black.
WHY HAVE A UK BLACK PHARMACISTS ASSOCIATION?
There is ample data indicating a differential experience and outcomes for black pharmacists compared to other ethnic groups. These inequalities have been evident for a while now but are under documented and therefore hidden. Many black pharmacists have experienced discrimination arising from conscious or unconscious bias. We aim to create practical solutions to the current inequalities faced by black pharmacists in the UK. We believe that patients and indeed society at large are best served if all pharmacists are allowed to reach their full potential, independent of colour, nationality or ethnicity.
Promoting and supporting the interests of UK pharmacists, pre-registration pharmacists and pharmacy students (including students on the Overseas Pharmacists' Assessment Programme) who identify as black.
