WHAT WE DO
We offer support to pharmacists, pre-registration pharmacists and pharmacy students identifying as black
Everyone can benefit from a mentor. We aim to match mentees with mentors who are experienced in each sector of pharmacy and who understand the unique challenges faced by black pharmacists.
SOMEONE TO TALK TO
Sometimes, people just need someone to talk to when they are going through difficulties at work or in university. Even better if it is someone who understands where they are coming from and can signpost them to other sources of help.
The UKBPA is a platform for sharing experiences, identifying educational and professional opportunities and generally supporting each other
Black pharmacists are doing some amazing things. The UKBPA aims to recognise and celebrate these pharmacists and in doing so, we hope to inspire the next generation of black pharmacists to reach for the stars
A THINK-TANK OF PRACTICAL SOLUTIONS
The data points to some uncomfortable findings, which we need to tackle head on such as higher risk of suspension or removal from the register if one is from a minority ethnic group. We believe that the best practical solutions will come from the group affected and not from an ‘independent review’ or ‘research’ carried out by people who do not really understand the challenges faced by black pharmacists.
