Standards

We set standards for pharmacy professionals and registered pharmacies in Great Britain. These standards help to make sure people using pharmacy services receive safe and effective care.

We set standards in five areas:

Standards for pharmacy professionals

Standards for registered pharmacies

Continuing professional development (CPD)

Standards for the initial education and training for pharmacists

Standards for the initial education and training for pharmacy technicians

From time to time we publish guidance to help pharmacy teams better understand our standards. Our guidance can be found here.
