New standards for pharmacy professionals come into effect

All pharmacy professionals in Great Britain will have to meet new standards, which came into effect last week.

The nine standards describe how safe and effective care is delivered through person-centred professionalism, and replace the standards of conduct, ethics and performance.

The GPhC has written to all pharmacy professionals in Great Britain to ask them to reflect on how to apply the standards in their practice.

The GPhC has also written to all superintendent pharmacists, and asked them to discuss with those who own and govern their pharmacies how they will fulfil their shared responsibility to create an environment in which pharmacy professionals working in their pharmacies are able to meet these standards.
