ActivityThe Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain was founded in London by a group of leading chemists and druggists. Its aims were to unite the profession into one body to protect its members' interests and to advance scientific knowledge. Its headquarters were situated in Bloomsbury Square until a move to Lambeth in 1976. In 1843 Queen Victoria granted the society its royal charter and supplementary charters were issued in 1901, 1948 and 1953. In May 1988 the title 'Royal' was permitted to be added to the name of the society. The Scottish department of the society was established in 1851 and gained statutory recognition as part of the society by supplemental royal charter in 1953. The Welsh Executive of the Society was formed in 1976.
