We hope that this series of articles, sharing examples of what we are seeing through our inspections of registered pharmacies, can prompt discussion and help pharmacy owners and the pharmacy team continually improve the services they provide to patients and the public. At the heart of our strategy for regulation is ‘assurance’ and ‘improvement’. This month, we are focusing on excellent practice within pharmacies.

This isn't limited to those pharmacies that were considered ‘excellent’ overall- it also recognises pharmacy teams who demonstrated particular areas of excellence.
