Revalidation for pharmacists and pharmacy technicians

Revalidation is a process which helps to show that the trust members of the public have in pharmacy professionals is well placed.

It helps pharmacists and pharmacy technicians to:

  • keep their professional skills and knowledge up to date
  • reflect on how to improve
  • show how they provide the safe and effective care patients and the public expect, as set out in the standards for pharmacy professionals

On 30 March 2018, revalidation replaces the current requirement for registrants to complete CPD.

The revalidation framework sets out our expectations of what pharmacy professionals must do each year to meet the revalidation requirement. Read the revalidation framework in Welsh

Starting with registration renewals due by 31 October 2018, every time a pharmacy professional renews their registration with the GPhC, they will need to submit records to show how they have carried out and recorded revalidation activities.
