It is with great sadness that we have to report the death of one of the

 founding members of BPA, JBPA back then, Stan Wheatley.

Stan was one of the few people awarded with

life time membership of the association.

He passed away after a short illness on December 8th.

Stan gave massive support to the association being Chair and also

Chair of the Professional Standing Committee after that,

when he raised the awareness of the employee pharmacist view

with many external bodies as well as keeping a watchful eye on

what was happening professionally within the company.

Stan had a long career in Boots management,

managing the stores in Andover, Fareham and Guernsey.

He retired to Blandford.

He had a big impact on many pharmacists’ careers and will be greatly missed.

Our thoughts go out to his children Marianne and Sean and their families.
