How long does the investigation take?

The amount of time it takes to investigate your concern depends on how complicated it is. However, in the majority of cases, our aim is to notify you of the decision whether to refer the matter to the Investigating Committee within 6 months from the date on which we received your concern.

The GPhC will aim to update you every 2 months on the progress of your case.

If your concern is referred to the Fitness to Practise Committee then we will write to you setting out the timeframes involved.
