Standards for pharmacy professionals

The standards apply to all pharmacists and pharmacy technicians in Great Britain.

There are nine standards that every pharmacy professional is accountable for meeting.

The standards for pharmacy professionals describe how safe and effective care is delivered. They are a statement of what people expect from pharmacy professionals, and also reflect what pharmacy professionals have told us they expect of themselves and their colleagues.
