Regulator: General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC)

Mandatory

The GPhC regulates pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, and pharmacies in Great Britain. They work to assure and improve standards of care for people using pharmacy services.

The GPhC’s role is to protect the public and give them assurance that they will receive safe and effective care when using pharmacy services. They set standards for pharmacy professionals and pharmacies to enter and remain on their register.

 

As a condition of registration, registrants must keep a record of CPD and submit it to the Council on request, make at least 9 CPD entries per year that reflect the context and scope of the registrant’s practice, and record how their CPD has contributed to the quality or development of their practice using the Council’s CPD framework. You are required to keep a record of your CPD that complies with the good practice criteria for CPD recording published in Plan and Record by GPhC, and to submit your CPD record to GPhC on request.
