Are you a member of the public who is seeking to make a difference and help to influence decisions which impact on the health of society? If the answer is yes, we want to hear from you! The Faculty of Pharmaceutical Medicine (FPM) is seeking two lay trustees, ideally with expertise in organisation development and/or charity governance.
So who are we? FPM is the professional membership organisation for pharmaceutical physicians (doctors) and is a registered charity. It works for the benefit of patients and the public by contributing to the provision of effective medicines by seeking to advance the science and practice of pharmaceutical medicine.
Charity trustees are the people who serve on the governing body of a charity. Trustees have and must accept ultimate responsibility for directing the affairs of a charity and ensuring that it is solvent, well-run, and delivering the charitable outcomes for the benefit of the public for which it has been set up. Trustees are also Directors of FPM under the Companies Act.
The FPM’s governing body is its Board of Trustees which has fourteen trustee members. Twelve of the trustees are medically qualified and are current members of FPM. The two lay trustees will provide invaluable lay perspective to help FPM to deliver its current strategy which is based on three pillars of Trust, Sustainability and Relevance. Further details of FPM’s strategy 2023-2025 are here.
