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:
5th Floor, 196 Deansgate
