Pharmacy update - October 2022
An update on everything new within the Pharmacy sector.
Guidance to support the implementation of the standards for the education and training of pharmacist independent prescribers
The General Pharmaceutical Council have issued new guidance for entry to independent prescribing courses.
The purpose of the guidance document is to support the introduction of the new entry requirements. It is relevant for course providers, course applicants, and GPhC accreditation panel members, and gives some specific suggestions and examples of what we may expect the course provider and course applicant to demonstrate.
It should not, however, limit or prevent course providers and applicants from using other examples and/or experiences. In addition to the guidance, consideration should also be given to any other appropriate documents.
