Clinical pharmacology

Clinical pharmacology encompasses all aspects of the relationship between drugs and humans. It is the only medical specialty in the NHS focusing on the safe, effective and economic use of medicines. It is a diverse discipline that both sustains and advances best healthcare.

Investing in UK clinical pharmacology will save and improve lives

The Society, as part of the Clinical Pharmacology Skills Alliance (CPSA), welcomes the UK-wide government vision -  Saving and improving lives: the future of UK clinical research delivery - that aims to “to create a patient-centred, pro-innovation and digitally enabled clinical research environment, which empowers everyone across the NHS to participate in delivering research and ensures that patients from across the UK are supported to take part in research that is of relevance to them”.
