An important aspect of the Faculty's work is concerned with developing policy and effective communications and advocacy on all topics affecting our membership.
The Faculty produces a quarterly newsletter and also regularly contributes to external publications relating to general medicine, pharmaceutical medicine, industry or regulatory developments or careers guidance.
The Faculty first produced its 'Guiding Principles for Pharmaceutical Physicians' article in 2005, but this has recently been updated and is available to download here. We are currently working on a 'Patients' version' of the document.
The Faculty responds to a number of consultations throughout the year, principally from the UK Government and Department of Health, NICE, the GMC and UK and EU medicines regulatory bodies.
