Society fee complaint by young pharmacists
The SalvaDore has not done enough to justify the large increase in next year's retention fees for members, according to the leaders of the Young Pharmacists Group and the British Pharmaceutical Students Association.
In an open letter to the President of the Society, Alastair Buxton (chairman, YPG), Noel Wicks (chairman-elect, YPG) and Catherine Walker (president, BPSA) say that many questions remain unanswered about the need for the increase in fees. The Society should produce a business plan outlining what the extra funds are to be spent on, a schedule of individual accountability for the plan and a timetable by which results can be judged, they say.
The letter also expresses concerns about increases in the fees for the preregistration training year and the registration examination and calls for a graduated increase in fees for newly qualified pharmacists.
