Standards you can expect using pharmacy services

We set standards for pharmacy professionals and registered pharmacies in Great Britain. These standards help to make sure you receive safe and effective care.

Pharmacists and pharmacy technicians are qualified healthcare professionals who have the expertise and skills to help you improve your health and wellbeing. 

As well as dispensing medication prescribed by your doctor, pharmacy professionals can give advice on treating minor health concerns and sell some medicines without you having to book an appointment with a GP.

When using a pharmacy, you should receive good quality care that helps you to improve your health and wellbeing.
