Steve Brine MP to have responsibility for pharmacy in new ministerial role

June 23, 2017

Steve Brine, the MP for Winchester, is the new minister with responsibility for pharmacy.

Mr Brine was appointed as Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Health last week by Prime Minister Theresa May, but his ministerial brief was not known at that point.

Mr Brine is a long-term Conservative activist and has served as Jeremy Hunt’s Parliamentary Private Secretary. He has also previously worked alongside the Minister of State for Disabled People, but his most recent role as an Assistant Whip rendered him unable to participate in debates during the past year.

PSNC Chief Executive Sue Sharpe said:

“PSNC will write to welcome the minister to his new role and we look forward to meeting him at the earliest opportunity to discuss how we can work together to deliver the Government’s aim to develop a stronger clinical role for community pharmacy, and address the damage and threats we have faced in the last year.”
