Peter Noyce dies after short illness

The chair of Pharmacist Support, Professor Peter Noyce CBE, has died after a short illness.

During the course of a highly distinguished career in the profession, he held a range of senior posts including Deputy Chief Pharmacist at the Department of Health and Head of the School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences at Manchester University.

In a statement on its website, the charity said Professor Noyce was “a steadfast chair, leading by example and always ready to pitch in and do his bit. His sense of humour was always welcomed as was his sense of fairness and inclusivity. His core values were in synergy with those of Pharmacist Support and they will continue to influence the work of the charity for many years to come. We have lost a valued colleague and friend”.

Pharmacist Support is accepting cards and messages from anyone who would like them passed onto Professor Noyce’s family. These can be sent to the charity’s office at: Pharmacist Support, 5th Floor, 196 Deansgate, Manchester M3 3WF.

The funeral will take place on Wednesday June 21. For details email messages@pharmacistsupport.org.
