If you are a national of an European Economic Area (EEA) country and you qualified as a pharmacist in an EEA country other than the UK, you will need to complete the questionnaire in the EEA application pack and return it to us, along with the documentation listed.
You will be required to provide information relating to your qualification and/or work experience and arrange for documents to be sent direct to the GPhC by the relevant regulatory body and competent authority in your home country.
Once you have provided the necessary information, we will send you the relevant application form.
Under EU legislation EEA qualified pharmacists can apply to provide temporary and occasional pharmacy services in the UK. For information on what this means and how to apply please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Important: due to the COVID-19 outbreak, we are not currently able to accept any applications as we are not able to receive hard copies of supporting documents by post. Please email us at email@example.com if you want to be notified when we are able to accept applications again.
English language competency
From 21 November 2016, a new law makes it a legal requirement for you to provide evidence of your English language skills.
You will not be able to register until you have provided evidence that you have the necessary knowledge of English for safe and effective practice. The evidence you provide must comply with our guidance on evidence of English language skills. You can find a full copy of this guidance here.
Key parts of the guidance can also be found in the above information pack.
Please be aware that our requirements concerning evidence of English language skills do not replace the very important role that employers will continue to play in checking that you are competent to carry out the role you are applying for and have the necessary knowledge of English to practise safely and effectively, as part of their interview and selection process.
Managing your registration
If your application is successful, you will need to create an account on the myGPhC system to manage your registration and complete your revalidation. We will send you more details in your confirmation letter and you may find this step by step guide to creating an account on myGPhC useful.
