Who is the most influential person in pharmacy? Time to vote
C+D has launched a new online initiative to find the most influential person in community pharmacy – and it needs your help.
To create the final ‘Pharmacy 50’ ranking of the most influential individuals in 2017, the C+D team and readers have compiled a shortlist of 123 candidates from all areas of community pharmacy – as well as relevant sectors in politics and healthcare.
An app – available on both the C+D homepage and on a dedicated Pharmacy 50 webpage – generates pairs of these 122 individuals at random, allowing readers to vote for which of the two they think is the most influential.
Voting launched today (March 28) and will remain open for a month, after which the votes will be counted and the top 50 highest-ranking individuals announced on the C+D site.
The previous – and only – Pharmacy 50 took place in 2013, when more than 37,700 reader votes resulted in England’s chief pharmaceutical officer Keith Ridge being named the most influential figure in community pharmacy.
