The GPhC currently provides guidance to schools of pharmacy about student fitness to practise. This is to help ensure that they have robust and effective measures in place to develop their own fitness to practise procedures.
Changes to the guidance
We have updated the guidance so that it can be used by all providers of education and training which lead to pharmacy professional registration or annotation, including courses for pharmacy technicians and pharmacist independent prescribers.
Following an initial phase of engagement conducted in the Spring 2019, we have drafted:
- proposed guidance [PDF 845 KB] ,
- a set of accompanying case studies [PDF 317 KB] designed to help different individuals and organisations understand and put into practice the principles of the guidance
Help us improve the guidance
We now would like to get your feedback about the updated guidance and case studies to make sure these can be used in practice and meet the needs of students, trainees and education and training providers.
To do so, we have put together a survey where you can tell us your views on the draft guidance and influence the final version. We need your feedback on the different sections of the guidance, as well as what needs to be amended, is missing, or might be challenging to implement.
Please submit your views by 18 December 2019
Please read the above draft guidance on managing concerns in pharmacy education and training before responding to our survey. We look forward to hearing your views.
