The Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry (ABPI) has announced the appointment of Sandra Auld as operations director in Scotland.

ABPI Scotland Director, Andy Powrie-Smith said of the appointment: "The new Scottish operations director role has been created to give ABPI Scotland more capacity to support members and take forward the value, innovation, trust and access imperatives of the ABPI."

"Central to the job will be continuing to inform Scottish healthcare, economic and education policies as the medicines industry plays its part in underpinning Scotland's strong life sciences sector," he added. "Sandra brings a wealth of experience to the new role coupled to her invaluable understanding of both the NHS and the medicines industry."

Auld's previous roles include working as nurse in central Scotland; being part of research teams at both Glasgow and Edinburgh universities; and working as a health policy manager for two different medicines companies.

Her current role is service development manager for the NHS Scottish Centre for Telehealth – a body set up to support and guide the use of telecommunications technologies to deliver health-related services and information.

Speaking of her new position, Auld said: "Scotland's medicines sector is an important driver of the health and wealth of Scotland and the ABPI has a central role in providing a strong voice for the 11,000 people whose jobs rely on its continued success in Scotland."

She added: "This is an exciting new role for me and also a continuation of the sort of work I have enjoyed so much in the NHS of creating and building partnerships; of finding ways for people to work together across boundaries for the sake of the best patient care; and of making sure policy and services are designed in the best way for the job."
