ABPI code of practice arm fills comms post

The Prescription Medicine Code of Practice Authority, part of the Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry (ABPI), has hired Niamh MacMahon in the newly created role of comms manager.

MacMahon moves from an interim PA head role at the General Social Care Council and started at the PMCPA this Monday.

She will have responsibility for promotion of the revised ABPI code of practice, which came into effect on 1 January. She reports to PMCPA director Heather Simmonds.

The PMCPA was set up in 1993 to administer the ABPI’s code of practice at ‘arm’s length’ from the group itself.
MacMahon, named one of PRWeek’s ‘Top 29 under 29’ just last week (PRWeek, 30 June), has been at the General Social Care Council for almost three years and previously worked as a comms assistant at Sussex University.

At the council, she has been replaced by Nicky Edwards, who joined three months ago from a role as policy and PA manager at National Endowment for Science, Technology and the Arts (Nesta).
