Consultation on draft changes to fees 2023

Consultation icon

We are consulting on proposed changes to fees

We are proposing a 7.5% increase in all fees for pharmacies, pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, and foundation trainees, including those for registration and renewal, from April 2024. This means that:

  • the pharmacist renewal fee would increase by £19 from £257 to £276
  • the pharmacy technician renewal fee would increase by £9 from £121 to £130
  • the pharmacy premises renewal fee would increase by £27 from £365 to £392

You can see a full list of the proposed fee changes in the consultation document below. 

We need your views on:

  • our approach to increasing fees equally across all registrant groups in 2024, to cover increases in our operational costs  
  • the impact of our proposal to increase fees by 7.5% on pharmacy staff, pharmacy owners, foundation trainee pharmacists, patients and members of the public, and individuals or groups sharing any of the protected characteristics

Have your say

The consultation is open until Tuesday 8 August 2023 and the survey takes approximately 5-10 minutes to complete.

We welcome feedback from individuals and organisations. This will help us test our overall approach to fee setting, as well as the specific proposals.
