The Worshipful Society of Apothecaries lies at the heart of the early foundations of modern-day medicine and remains an important, active and innovative medical institution today. The Society plays a key role in the advancement of specialist areas of medicine, and in the ongoing post-graduate education and qualification of practitioners.
Steeped in history and tradition, the Society was founded by Royal Charter in 1617 and is one of the few livery companies in the City of London to remain professionally based with over 85 per cent of its membership belonging to professions allied to medicine.
We support students in financial distress through no fault of their own at every medical school in England and Wales, and at some schools of pharmacy.
Other minor grants are given to City of London and related charities. We do not usually accept unsolicited requests for support.

The Society opened its doors for a family friendly weekend on Sunday, 22nd September for ‘Open House Weekend’. The Master and Beadle greeted everyone in the Courtyard and a host of volunteers scattered around the building offered gems of knowledge about the history of rooms, paintings and treasures. Thank you to all our volunteers […]
