Updated strategic plan 2017-20

We have published our updated strategic plan 2017-20, which sets out the progress we have made in the second 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 are continuing to make good progress in achieving the aims set out in our strategic plan.

Our achievements under our key goals include:

  • successfully introducing revalidation for pharmacists and pharmacy technicians, including the creation of a new online portal enabling them to manage their records efficiently and effectively alongside their annual registration renewal applications.
  • implementing new standards for the initial education and training of pharmacy technicians, and new criteria for registration as a pharmacy technician. 
  • consulting on developing our approach to regulating registered pharmacies, including proposals to publish inspection reports for the first time, and using what we heard to help develop and refine our approach.
  • developing, consulting on and launching guidance for pharmacy owners which sets out what pharmacy owners are expected to do to ensure a safe and effective pharmacy team
