The United Kingdom Clinical Pharmacy Association (UKCPA) is a member association for clinical pharmacy practitioners. UKCPA was established in 1981 with the aim of supporting and encouraging the emergence of clinical pharmacy. It brings together like-minded pharmacists
from different practice areas to share knowledge, research and experiences. This remains UKCPA's core aim today. It provides networking and educational opportunities for UKCPA members and a forum for pharmacists and technicians in all settings, notably community and hospital, to discuss and resolve current Clinical issues.
