Employing a provisionally-registered pharmacist guidance

July 20, 2020

The General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC) has provided guidance about employing provisionally-registered pharmacists

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected the ability of trainees completing the pharmacist pre-registration scheme in 2020 to finish their training as planned, and to sit the registration assessment as originally scheduled.

Pending successful completion of the rescheduled assessment, the GPhC governing council has agreed a policy for registering pharmacists on a provisional basis.

The policy sets out that current pre-registration trainees who meet the criteria for provisional registration are able to be provisionally-registered as a pharmacist, with certain restrictions, from 1 August 2020.

The guidance sets out what employers and superintendents must do, if they plan to employ a pharmacist who is provisionally registered.
