The General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC) has published a report which provides further analysis of those trainees who reported having been dissatisfied with their pre-registration training experience as part of a 2013 survey they took part in.
According to a GPhC report on the public perceptions of pharmacy in England, Scotland and Wales, the vast majority of people trust health advice from a pharmacist. The report is based on a survey of members of the general public in Great Britain carried out by Ipsos MORI last autumn.
The GPhC is taking forward the changes agreed by the independent board of assessors to the 2016 registration assessment for pharmacists in order to fully reflect the significant changes that have taken place in the profession since it was first introduced in 1993.
Earlier this year the GPhC and other regulatory bodies became aware of concerns about Healthcare at Home following the receipt of complaints. As a result the GPhC, supported by staff from NHS England, MHRA and CQC, conducted inspections in April and August.
The General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC) has launched a discussion document which describes important proposed changes to the guidance which fitness to practise committees must use in reaching decisions.
Pharmacists’ access to patient medical records is a welcome and positive step towards enabling pharmacy professionals to deliver improved outcomes for patients. We believe that access to records will increase dialogue and communication and improve collaboration with other healthcare professionals.
