Consultation on our draft equality, diversity and inclusion strategy

We consulted on our draft strategy to help transform the GPhC’s approach to equality, diversity and inclusion, which proposed for a more proactive and joined up approach in using our regulatory influence and levers to help reform the structures and practices that maintain inequality and discrimination within pharmacy and pharmacy regulation.

Our draft strategy sets out three key themes which are underpinned by a series of objectives and strategic outcomes, to help evaluate and measure the success of any changes:

  • To make regulatory decisions that are demonstrably fair, lawful, and so free from discrimination and bias;
  • To use our standards to proactively help tackle discrimination in all pharmacy settings and make sure everyone can access person-centred care, fostering equality of health outcomes;
  • To lead by example and demonstrate best practice within our organisation, holding ourselves to the same high standards we expect of others.

Our proposed strategy emphasises the importance of taking a proactive approach to equality, diversity and inclusion, while improvements to the way data and insights are collected and analysed are being made.
