Pharmacist Support is honouring its chair Professor Peter Noyce CBE after his "untimely passing".

The charity confirmed yesterday (June 8) that Professor Noyce had passed away, and reminded members that he was “instrumental” in its “development during his five years’ with us”.

“His unstinting commitment to, and support of, the charity will be truly missed, and the thoughts of the staff, trustees and volunteers are with Peter’s family at this very difficult time,” Pharmacist Support said.

“Peter enjoyed a highly regarded career that saw him hold a range of posts, including deputy chief pharmacist at the Department of Health, to head of the school of pharmacy and pharmaceutical sciences at Manchester University, to name but a few,” the charity said.

“Many of us have learned a great deal from Peter,” it added. “He was a steadfast chair, leading by example and always ready to pitch in and do his bit.”

“We have lost a valued colleague and friend.”

Pharmacist Support is accepting cards and messages from anyone who would like them passed on to the family. These can sent to the charity’s office at:

Em, Locum pharmacist

I remember Professor Noyce from when I was a student at the University of Manchester back in 2010. His course content was way over my head but seemed like a nice chap. RIP.

Professor Noyce was the new head of Pharmacy Department At University of Manchester in 1994 when I was in the first year undergraduate student. He was indeed a very nice chap. RIP.
