Nitin Sodha becomes NPA Chair

23 Apr 2018

Nitin Sodha has replaced Ian Strachan as Chair of the National Pharmacy Association, following an NPA Board meeting today (Monday 23 April).

Nitin is Managing Director of Knights Chemists. He was first elected to the NPA Board in 2007 and has served as Vice Chair since 2014.

Nitin said:

“It is an honour to be chosen to chair an organisation so central to the history and the future of independent community pharmacy. After four years as Vice Chair, I look forward to continuing to work hard, with my board colleagues and the NPA staff, in the interests of independent pharmacies and the patients they serve.”

Ian Strachan’s four year term as Chair ended earlier this month. Ian said today:

“I am handing the baton over to an experienced colleague, who is passionate about community pharmacy, as are we all on this board. These are challenging times for the sector, but the new chair, myself and the entire board are ready to play our part in helping independents take the journey of change that is necessary.”

Andrew Lane has been elected as Vice Chair. Michael Guerin continues as Treasurer.
