In order to practise in Great Britain, pharmacists and pharmacy technicians must be registered with the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC) and have satisfied us that they meet our detailed requirements.
Pharmacists, pharmacy technicians and registered pharmacy premises must renew their registration with us every year, which involves completing a declaration stating that they meet all our professional, fitness to practise and ethical standards.
Anyone who is not registered with the GPhC but practises as a pharmacist or pharmacy technician, or refers to themselves as such, is breaking the law and can be prosecuted.
Patients can have confidence that the individuals who appear on our registers are fully qualified and meet all our standards.
The register is available for the public to search online and contains details of pharmacists, pharmacy technicians and pharmacy premises.
