Consultation on how we set fees

We are consulting on our fee review

This consultation will help us develop our fees strategy, which is part of our long-term financial strategy to deliver a financially stable organisation that can effectively fund the cost of regulation.

In this consultation we are not proposing changes to the amount paid in fees by any of our registrants

We need your views on:

  • Our proposal to retain a flat fee structure, rather than introduce differential fees, for registered pharmacy professionals. This would mean that all pharmacists and pharmacy technicians would continue to pay the same fee as others in their respective registrant group. 
  • Our proposal to introduce a multi-year fees cycle rather than the current annual cycle, to allow for better forward financial planning for individual registrants and the GPhC. 
  • Whether we should explore charging to recover costs for the accreditation/recognition and re-accreditation/re-recognition, of all, rather than some, education and training courses and qualifications.

Have your say

The consultation is open until 2 June 2021 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.
