The GPhC in Scotland

We want to make sure that all patients and members of the public in Scotland can access high-quality pharmacy services. 

To help to achieve this, we work to make sure that pharmacy regulation responds to and reflects developments in Scotland. This involves working closely with pharmacy and health professionals, pharmacy owners, the Scottish Government and the Scottish Parliament, regulatory and oversight bodies, and patients and the public across Scotland to make sure pharmacy services are safe and effective.
