RPS joins efforts to boost children’s health in Wales

The Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS) has joined the Welsh Royal Colleges Child Health Collaborative (WRCCHC) – a newly established group comprising 20
royal colleges and professional bodies that aims to improve health outcomes for children in Wales.

Together they have written to the First Minister of Wales asking how his government will improve child health and support the workforce that care for them.

Citing recent reports published by the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges and the Academy of Medical Sciences that highlighted declining health among children, they
have warned of the impact of poor child health.

The WRCCHC aims to ensure a sharper focus and understanding on the current and necessary support required for babies, children and young people and the workforce
they represent.

RPS Wales will be represented in the group by Anthony Lewis, Children and Women Lead Pharmacist at Cardiff and Vale University Health Board.
