GPhC’s decisions in fitness to practise cases praised in new report

The General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC) is dealing with complaints about registrants fairly, promptly and effectively, a review of its fitness to practise processes by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA) has found.

The report noted good practice with the timeliness of casework, with 21 cases being closed well within the GPhC’s deadlines. Investigations were found to be robust and risk assessment also continued to be identified as a strength, with evidence of risk assessment found in all of the cases audited. This enables the regulator to assess what action should be taken and how the case should be prioritised in order that the most serious cases are dealt with first.
