A Neurology Specialist Pharmacist from Stourbridge has been awarded the status of a ‘Fellow’ of the Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS) for her outstanding contribution to the advancement of pharmaceutical knowledge.

Dr Janine Barnes, who is based at Stourbridge Health & Social Care Centre, has been given the title that recognises individuals who have attained distinction in their pharmacy career and is one of the highest honours that can be awarded to members of the RPS.

“I have invested a lot of time and energy in the development of the role of Neurology Specialist Pharmacist, both in its commissioning phase

“I was delighted and honoured to receive recognition from the Royal Pharmaceutical Society as appointment to the prestigious status of Fellow was completely unexpected. I had no idea that my name had been proposed. I look forward to continuing to work for the benefit of neurology patients in the Dudley area,” she added.

Chief Pharmacist Ruckie Kahlon said, “This is a huge accolade for a practicing pharmacist at the Trust. Janine has been pivotal in developing non-medical prescribing for patients with neurological conditions and we are so proud of this achievement.”
