A statement from Duncan Rudkin, Chief Executive of the GPhC.
We are working hard to resolve any issues candidates may have experienced when booking their place for the registration assessment.

Registration assessment candidates in countries with more than two hours’ time difference from the UK will now have the option to sit the March registration assessment remotely, subject to availability of places.
We have updated our position on supplying different types of COVID-19 tests from pharmacies in Great Britain.
We have responded to a letter from GenderGP about action we have taken in relation to two pharmacies working with GenderGP.
The Council of the GPhC will be meeting on Thursday 11 February from 10:00 to 13:00.
Frontline pharmacy workers are among the high priority groups identified by the JCVI for receiving a COVID-19 vaccine. This is because people working in frontline roles are at greater risk of exposure to COVID-19.
We have issued a joint letter with the UK Chief Pharmaceutical Officers and the PSNI thanking pharmacy colleagues for their ongoing work throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
The implementation of these standards will transform the education and training of pharmacists for a generation, so they are able to play a much greater role in providing clinical care to patients and the public from their first day on the register, including through prescribing medicines.
