Default Re: Structure And Function Of GPHC

The General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC) is the independent regulator for pharmacists, pharmacy technicians and pharmacy premises in Great Britain.

Function :

Approving qualifications for pharmacists and pharmacy technicians and accrediting education and training providers;
Maintaining a register of pharmacists, pharmacy technicians and pharmacy premises;
setting standards for conduct, ethics, proficiency, education and training, and continuing professional development (CPD);
Establishing and promoting standards for the safe and effective practice of pharmacy at registered pharmacies;
Establishing fitness to practise requirements, monitoring pharmacy professionals' fitness to practise and dealing fairly and proportionately with complaints and concerns.


Patients and the public
they regularly work with patients, carers and users of pharmacy services, and the groups that represent them to inform the development of our policies and the way we regulate.

Governments, the NHS, commissioners and providers
they work closely with the governments and the NHS in England, Scotland and Wales, as well as with local government and other commissioners and providers of health and social care. This helps us to ensure we regulate in a way that is responsive, and reflective of, developments in all three countries.

Professional and trade associations and bodies
they work with a range of organisations that represent the interests of pharmacy professionals or pharmacy owners. We meet with these groups to help us understand the experiences of pharmacy professionals and to inform our work.

Education bodies
they set standards for the education and training of pharmacists and pharmacy technicians. To help us do this we work closely with organisations involved with pharmacy education and training.

UK health and social care regulators
We work together with other healthcare regulators to share information and examples of good practice. Find out who regulates different health and social care professionals in the UK
