Standards for registered pharmacies

The standards for registered pharmacies set out the requirements for the provision of pharmacy services at or from a registered pharmacy.

Our standards for registered pharmacies are designed to create and maintain the right environment for the safe and effective practice of pharmacy and to improve the quality and safety of services provided to patients and the public.

The standards apply to all pharmacies registered with the General Pharmaceutical Council. Everyone in the pharmacy team should be familiar with these standards and plays a key role in delivering person-centred care.The responsibility for meeting these standards lies with the pharmacy owner.
