Let us know your thoughts on our strategy for managing concerns about pharmacy professionals

17 December 2020

There’s still time to respond to our consultation

Since we launched our consultation on a proposed new approach to managing concerns about pharmacy professionals, we’ve heard from patients and the public, pharmacy professionals, lawyers and others involved in representing pharmacy professionals, other regulators, and employers, through a series of online focus groups and events. 

The consultation is open until 22 January 2021, so there’s still time to give us your feedback on our proposals, including:

  • the overall strategic aims and outcomes of the new approach
  • the new approach to assessing concerns once they are raised with us
  • introducing several, more flexible, outcomes to conclude a concern, such as using a reflective piece and mediation
  • addressing inequalities and bias in decision making
  • improving the service by being more person-centred
  • sharing best practice and learning from others
