Congratulations to Juliet Shepherd who successfully recredentialed with the College recently.
Juliet is Senior Pharmacist at the Herefordshire and Worcestershire Health and Care NHS Trust. She has also been a member of the CMHP Council from 2013, including serving as President from 2017 to 2019.
The assessor of Juliet’s recredentialing portfolio complimented her work, and said:
“As well as providing numerous years of service on CMHP Council there are great examples of working across services in your area and taking part in the production of national documents for mental health.”
When asked what she finds most rewarding in her role, Juliet said:
“Being appreciated as the specialist in medication to treat mental illness by the teams I work with and in doing so, improving the quality of life of patients. Ensuring that doctors and nurses feel supported in their decisions about medication so that we make the best choices, often in difficult circumstances.”
When asked what being credentialed by the college meant to her, she said:
“As many pharmacists do, I have a large dose of imposter syndrome. Being credentialed by eminent pharmacy staff who spend their spare time working hard to keep the college functioning is the biggest confidence boost I receive. I feel able to offer my opinion in my every day role on wards and when teaching, and for national issues such as NICE consultations, reviewing poster abstracts for conference and helping to viva other people going through the credentialing process.”
Our credentialed members are required to go through recredentialing every five years. Credentialed members are full members of the College and can carry the post-nominals MCMHP.
