The Irish Pharmacy Union (IPU) is the representative and professional body for community pharmacists, who are Ireland’s most accessible healthcare professionals. Established in 1973, the IPU, formerly the Irish Pharmaceutical Union, our sole focus is on protecting, promoting and strengthening the profession now and long into the future. As a membership organisation, our aim is to assist members in delivering the best possible service to their patients.

The IPU supports pharmacists’ professional and service development through education and training courses, to enhance their knowledge as a pharmacist, and by advocating for extended professional roles for community pharmacy. In addition, we support members in dealing with PSI inspections, Fitness to Practise, HSE PCRS queries and any other issues that arise. We make ongoing representations to the Department of Health (DoH), HPRA, HSE/PCRS, PSI and other bodies on behalf of members.
