Re-registering a pharmacy premises

Under the Medicines Act 1968, if you want to re-open a pharmacy and it has been less than 12 months since it was last registered, you can re-register the pharmacy by completing a pharmacy premises restoration application form (on click the document will attempt to download automatically).

If the pharmacy premises has not been registered for more than 12 months, complete a new premises registration form
