Nominating a superintendent pharmacist

You must nominate a superintdent pharmacist if: 

  • you are applying to register a new pharmacy or to restore a pharmacy to the register, where the pharmacy owner organisation is an NHS Trust, body corporate, or limited liability partnership which does not currently own any other pharmacies
  • you are notifying us of the change of ownership of a pharmacy, where the new owner organisation is an NHS Trust, body corporate, or limited liability partnership which does not currently own any other pharmacies
  • a new superintendent pharmacist is replacing a previous superintendent of an existing pharmacy owner organisation

If you have an NHS contract, you should also notify your local NHS team of any changes.
