Professor Christine Bond, IJPP Editor-in-Chief, has been awarded an honorary fellowship at the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGPs). A spokesperson for the RCGPs says: “Christine Bond is an asset to academic primary care within the UK and a strong supporter of UK general practice. The research evidence she has generated has helped inform changes in primary care service delivery.
In an interview with The Pharmaceutical Journal, Christine said: “I think I was given this award because although I am a pharmacist, I have spent my academic career in a medical school, developing general practice undergraduate teaching, and building a programme of research bringing pharmacy and general practice together.
Gradually some of my research has contributed to the position we are in now, where the professions are really working more closely together for a common goal of safer medicine,
” she adds.
