Standards for registered pharmacies

The standards for registered pharmacies set out the requirements for the provision of pharmacy services at or from a registered pharmacy. Our standards for registered pharmacies are designed to create and maintain the right environment for the safe and effective practice of pharmacy and to improve the quality and safety of services provided to patients and the public.

The standards apply to all pharmacies registered with the General Pharmaceutical Council. Everyone in the pharmacy team should be familiar with these standards and plays a key role in delivering person-centred care.The responsibility for meeting these standards lies with the pharmacy owner and / or the superintendent pharmacist.

You can look at the current standards for registered pharmacies here.

The standards for registered pharmacies are also available in Welsh here.

Guidance to support the standards for registered pharmacies can be found here.

We inspect registered pharmacies to seek assurance that our standards for registered pharmacies are met. You can find more information about our approach to inspection here.
