We consult to make sure our policies and standards are informed by the views of everyone with an interest in pharmacy services. This helps us to uphold standards and public trust.

A consultation is a formal process we use to get views of individuals or organisations who are affected by our work.

This includes:

  • patients, carers, people who use pharmacy services and members of the public
  • pharmacists and pharmacy technicians
  • students and trainees
  • pharmacy owners
  • professional bodies and organisations
  • other regulators
  • governments
  • educators
  • employers
