Who we are
The HPAI is a vocational professional group within the FORSA trade union. FORSA holds the negotiating licence for hospital pharmacists in their dealings with Government/the employer. By virtue of the negotiating licence, FORSA is the sole representative for hospital pharmacists (and some other health professional and social care groups) on issues of pay and conditions of employment. Under Irish legislation, professional bodies do not have negotiating rights with Government in their own right.
Through our Special Interest Groups (SIGs) we hold several meetings a year in addition to online sharing to provide valuable networking and opportunities to stay up to date and connected to other hospital pharmacist professionals working in specialist areas all around the country.
