Our Team

Guy Parckar

Chief Executive Officer

I started work as chief executive of Pharmacy Research UK (PRUK) in June 2018 and am responsible, working alongside our trustees and staff team, for the overall management, strategy and operations of the charity. I have worked in the charity sector for more than a decade, most recently as the CEO of a small health-related charity, and before that working in policy, campaigns and communications roles in a large disability charity. I’ve also served as a trustee at two small charities, and prior to that worked in Parliament. I am based at PRUK’s office in the Royal Pharmaceutical Society in London.
