From April 2018, pharmacists and pharmacy technicians will be required to go through revalidation in order to renew their professional registration.
The change has been made by the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC) and will replace the continuing professional development (CPD) only system.
The revalidation process will require pharmacy professionals to collect four CPD records in the first revalidation year, and further records of peer discussion and reflective accounts in following years.
Resources, including a presentation and introductory video, are available on the GPhC website along with the full framework of the revalidation process.
If employers produce further resources to support pharmacy professionals with their revalidation, the GPhC is happy to review these, and answer any questions on revalidation, via the following email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
