Data subscription service

Our data subscription service allows organisations to download information from the register.

The service

This service provides information from our registers to be used for certain permitted purposes:
  • validating the registration status of pharmacists, pharmacy technicians or pharmacy premises in the interests of public safety
  • non-commercial research
The service is not available to individual consumers, it is meant for organisations only and will allow said organisations to:
  • download data for all registered pharmacists, pharmacy technicians or registered pharmacy premises
  • download lists of changes to the register (additions to, removals and suspensions)
  • check if a pharmacist or pharmacy technician has a current registration with our registration validation service

The register extracts are updated daily and changes are compiled weekly.

The files are available through a secure website accessible only with a valid authorisation code.

Users can access the files either manually or by setting up automated downloads. The data is available in either XML or CSV file formats.

This service does not contain any non-public domain data. It will not, for example, contain postal addresses for pharmacists and pharmacy technicians.

Subscription options

  • All registers – annual subscription cost £600
  • Registered pharmacy premises only – annual subscription cost £400
