Former Well Pharmacy superintendent takes top job at Greater Manchester LPC

Former Well Pharmacy superintendent Janice Perkins has been appointed as the executive chair of Greater Manchester local pharmaceutical committee (LPC), it has been announced.

She succeeds Fin McCaul, who has completed a two-year term of office, the LPC announced today (March 8).

It confirmed to C+D that Ms Perkins, who stepped down as Well’s superintendent in 2021 after more than 15 years in the post, started her new role on Monday (March 6).

She became the multiple’s superintendent in 2005, when it still operated under the Co-Operative Pharmacy moniker before Bestway’s £620 million buyout of the chain in 2014.

She was succeeded by her then-deputy Ifti Khan, who also sits on Greater Manchester LPC’s committee as its vice-chair.

Ms Perkins was also the chair of the Community Pharmacy Patient Safety Group until August 2021, when Lloydspharmacy superintendent Victoria Steele took over.

Last July, it was announced that Ms Perkins had joined the locum booking company Locum Bell as an independent non-executive director.

Ms Perkins said she was “delighted” to be joining the LPC and working to “create opportunities for community pharmacy and help find solutions for the challenges facing the profession”.

Ms Perkins is also chair of the Community Pharmacy Patient Expert Advisory Group and acts as a visiting professor in community pharmacy at Keele University.
