We are now able to confirm the remaining registration assessment dates for 2021.
The General Pharmaceutical Council is consulting on how it sets fees for registered pharmacists and pharmacy technicians.  
The Council of the GPhC will be meeting on Thursday 11 March from 12:00
We have given a further update on our response to issues experienced by some candidates when booking places for the March registration assessment.
We are pleased to confirm that Pearson VUE have now been able to secure further test centre places in Scotland for the March registration assessment. This means that Scottish candidates who want to sit the assessment in Scotland should be able to do so. We’re working with Pearson VUE to complete the allocation of the test centre places to these candidates by the end of this week and they should receive confirmation emails as soon as their booking has been updated.
Registrants due to submit their revalidation records between 1 May – 30 November 2021 will only need to submit a reflective account when they renew their registration.
