Making a declaration about your fitness to practise

Use the form at the bottom of this page to tell us about any issues which may affect your fitness to practise if you are a pharmacist or pharmacy technician registered with us, currently in training, or applying to join our register.

You can use this form to tell us about issues including:

  • cautions or convictions and other criminal offence outcomes
  • investigations or fitness to practise proceedings with other regulatory bodies

You do not need to declare fixed penalty notices for offences such as speeding.

If you have already declared a matter as part of your application to the register or your annual renewal, you do not need to declare it again unless something has changed.

If you need to tell us about a health issue which may affect your fitness to practise, use the health declaration form

What you need to give us:

  • as much detail as you can about the issue you are declaring
  • details of your employer or training provider, if you have one

How we use your information and next steps

All the information you provide will help us to make a decision on how to deal with your declaration. You can find out more in our privacy policy.

When you have submitted your declaration, you will receive an email to confirm that we have received it. This will include a reference number which you can use if you need to contact us about your declaration. 

Once we have reviewed your declaration, we will be in touch to let you know about the outcome and any next steps.
