Derby revisited

June 16, 2000

Your report (News, THES, June 9) about the subject review of pharmacy and pharmacology at the University of Derby was misleading. Those subjects were previously considered in a single unit that included programmes in general practice medicine. Weaknesses were largely in the latter. As a result, Derby closed the programme. The revisit has enabled appropriate credit to be given to pharmacy and pharmacology's strengths.

Such a problem will not arise in the new method of quality assurance, as separate reports will be made on any individual programme that is failing.
