Provisional registration for pharmacists

Provisional registration aims to support and enable trainees who have experienced procedural issues during the June 2022 registration assessment sitting to use their education and training to support NHS services and provide patient care effectively, while maintaining standards for entry to the register and protecting patient safety.

The individuals on this register are provisionally entered on Part 1 of the register as a pharmacist for a time-limited period, subject to certain restrictions as set out in eligibility criteria for provisional registration [PDF 167 KB]. They are required to meet the standards for pharmacy professionals [PDF 375 KB], including working within the limits of their skills and competence.

We have produced information for employers on their responsibilities [PDF 169 KB] if they employ a provisionally-registered pharmacist.
