We have published our updated strategic plan 2017-20, which sets out the progress we have made in the first year of our plan under our three strategic aims.
Our three year strategic plan runs until 2020, and describes our ambition to support and improve the delivery of safe, effective care in pharmacy. It also describes our strategic approach and operating principles for achieving that ambition. We believe that the aims and the strategic approach remain the right ones.
Our achievements under our key goals include:
- successfully launching our new standards for pharmacy professionals and developing and publishing guidance on religion, personal values and beliefs.
- carrying out an important consultation on the education and training of non-registered pharmacy staff - the feedback from this will help us improve our approach to regulating pharmacies
- publishing new standards for the initial education and training of pharmacy technicians
