Freedom of information
The Freedom of Information (FOI) Act 2000 gives anyone a right of access to recorded information held by public authorities such as the GPhC.
How to get information
In the first instance, check here on our website. You can search for information using the search function at the top of the page or by using our publications search.
Alternatively, our publications scheme commits us to making information available to the public as part of our normal activities. You can find the details of the information we make available on our website.
Make a request to us
If you cannot find what you want on the website, or by using the publications scheme, then you can send us an information request by letter or email. We will need:
- Your name and contact details (email or postal address) so we can send you a reply, and
- A description of the information you want.
It would be helpful if you could mark your mail ‘FOI request’. Please send your request to the Information Access Team:
Information Access Team
General Pharmaceutical Council
25 Canada Square
Tel: 020 3713 7827
We will respond to your request as soon as possible, normally within 20 working days, and provide you with a copy of the information unless an exemption applies, in which case we will let you know.
