Welcome to the BSHP website.

The British Society for the History of Pharmacy was formed in 1967 having originated from a committee of the Royal Pharmaceutical Society.

It seeks to act as a focus for the development of all areas of the history of pharmacy, from the works of the ancient apothecary to today's ever-changing role of the community, hospital, academic, wholesale or industrial pharmacist.
