Step 1: Make sure you have the correct information to hand
You will need your registration number and renewal number and your credit or debit card details (if you have not already set up a Direct Debit). You can find your registration and renewal number in your renewal notification letter. If you've misplaced your notification contact our customer services team on 0203 713 8000.
To renew by telephone, call 0845 872 5114, and follow the spoken instructions.
Step 2: Log into myGPhC.org and check that your details are up to date
If you have changed your registered address, email or telephone number since you last renewed your registration, you should update your details at www.mygphc.org. If you have changed your name, download a change of details form, which you can send us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Step 3: Make your declarations
You need to make two sets of declarations. The first is a declaration that you are fit to practise without restrictions, and the second is a declaration that you intend to practise as a pharmacist or pharmacy technician in Great Britain, and that the information provided in your application is complete, true and accurate. Click here to see the pharmacist renewal declarations, and here to see the pharmacy technician renewal declarations. Whether you are renewing online or via the automated telephone service, you will be asked to make both these declarations.
Step 4: Pay the fee
The annual renewal fee is as posted above. You can also make arrangements to pay annually or quarterly by direct debit. Further information about setting up a Direct Debit is available.
If you choose to pay by credit card there is a surcharge of 2% of your renewal fee.
You can download your receipt which is available from www.mygphc.org - receipts are not sent by post.
Renewal payment methods
