GPhC reinstates full revalidation requirements from October


GPhC reinstates full revalidation requirements from October

Pharmacists and pharmacy technicians will have to submit six revalidation records when renewing their registration from October 1 this year. 

After two years during which revalidation requirements have been eased to help pharmacy staff focus on patient care during the pandemic, with only one reflective account required, registrants will now have to submit:

  • Four CPD records, two of which must be planned events
  • One peer discussion
  • One reflective account.

The three professional standards that pharmacists should use to write their reflective account will be reviewed and updated in May. The standards should be used to write reflective accounts for revalidation submissions after October 1. 

Pharmacists and pharmacy technicians are encouraged to check the exact submission requirements and timeframes for their revalidation dates.

This follows the Government’s recent announcement that emergency measures first introduced in 2020 to help battle the pandemic are to be withdrawn this year.
