Registrants due to submit their revalidation records between 1 January – 30 April 2021 will only need to submit a reflective account when they renew their registration during that period.
The one reflective account should be recorded in the registrant’s myGPhC account and reflect on one or more of the following standards:
- standard 3 - pharmacy professionals must communicate effectively
- standard 6 - pharmacy professionals must behave professionally
- standard 9 - pharmacy professionals must demonstrate leadership
GPhC Chief Executive Duncan Rudkin said:
“I would like to thank everyone in the pharmacy profession for their continued efforts to protect patients and the public during the continued pandemic.
“We introduced a change to revalidation requirements earlier this year in recognition of the pressures on pharmacy professionals due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Given the challenges the pandemic continues to present, we are maintaining this approach for pharmacy professionals due to renew in the first part of next year.
“We would encourage pharmacy professionals to consider their experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic when completing their reflective account.”
The GPhC will make an announcement about revalidation requirements for pharmacy professionals due to revalidate their registration after 1 May 2021 following the outcome of a review in February next year.
