Chief Officer – Peter Prokopa
I qualified as a pharmacist with Boots in 1983 after attending Nottingham School of Pharmacy. I have worked since as a manager with Boots and then Safeway, West Midlands Co-Op, and latterly independent pharmacies; from January 2011, outside of my employment with the LPC I have been working as a Locum Pharmacist.
I was first elected to this LPC in 1998; I have also served as Vice-Chair of BLT Pharmacy Association, and for two years represented pharmacy contractors in BLT PCT as it was then on their Clinical Governance Committee. I was appointed LPC Chief Officer in December 2009. From June 2013 to September 2014 I was also engaged as Interim Chief Officer for Dudley LPC.
In my spare time I have been an avid sportsman, in more recent years swapping rugby for triathlon and running, although knee problems and old age (!) have limited me to swimming and cycling of late! I also enjoy motorcycling (Ducati 600SS), travel, musical theatre, food and wine. I live in Penkridge with my wife Lisa and son George.
