The GPhC currently provides guidance to schools of pharmacy about student fitness to practise. This is to help ensure that they have robust and effective measures in place to develop their own fitness to practise procedures.
Changes to the guidance
We have updated the guidance so that it can be used by all providers of education and training which lead to pharmacy professional registration or annotation, including courses for pharmacy technicians and pharmacist independent prescribers.
Following an initial phase of engagement conducted in the Spring 2019, we have drafted:
- proposed guidance [PDF 845 KB] ,
- a set of accompanying case studies [PDF 317 KB] designed to help different individuals and organisations understand and put into practice the principles of the guidance
Your views on the guidance
We put together a survey where you could tell us your views and influence the final version of the updated guidance and case studies. We want to make sure these can be used in practice and meet the needs of students, trainees and education and training providers.
The survey was open for six weeks and asked for your feedback on different sections of the guidance, as well as what you thought needed amending, might be missing, or challenging to implement.
The survey is now closed and we will use the next few months to evaluate responses and incorporate your insights to the final guidance. We hope to complete this process sometime in Spring 2020.
