Becoming a designated supervisor

Designated supervisors support trainee pharmacists to meet the standards expected of a pharmacist and deliver patient-centred care.

To become a designated supervisor, you must:

  • be a registered pharmacist in Great Britain
  • have been registered for three years or more
  • have been practising in the sector of pharmacy, or a related sector, that you want to supervise in
  • satisfy the assessment requirements if you’re under investigation by us (have no sanctions or conditions on your registration and no current fitness to practise issues)

If you have, or have previously had, any conditions or restrictions on your practice, we’ll assess if these affect your ability to carry out your role as a designated supervisor. You may not meet the criteria to become a supervisor until the conditions or restrictions are lifted.
