The General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC) requirements for revalidation are designed to ensure that pharmacy professionals practice safely and effectively, and demonstrate up-to-date knowledge and skills in order to maintain and improve practice. Revalidation provides further assurance to people using pharmacy services that pharmacy professionals are continuing to meet the standards set out by the GPhC throughout their careers.
The full revalidation requirements come back into force on 1 October 2022.
You need to complete the following:
You should reflect on one or more of the following standards in your reflective account:
When writing your reflective account, you are expected to reflect on one or more of the three standards, selected by the Council from our Standards for pharmacy professionals. You must give one or more examples in your reflective account of how you have met the standard(s) in your practice.
CPPE have a dedicated learning gateway on Revalidation, which contains links to the GPhC information on the revalidation framework, fact sheets and example records as well as other resources that can help you to meet the requirements.
Our learning can provide the basis for your CPD records, an opportunity to identify someone to support peer discussion and a chance to reflect on your practice. We will soon be launching a support tool to help guide you through your revalidation and identify learning opportunities from our portfolio specific to your requirements. This page will be updated with a link when it becomes available.
We have developed our portfolio to support your continuing professional development and help you to meet the requirements of revalidation. Our portfolio includes a wide range of online and face-to-face programmes suitable for different learning styles, which support all areas of practice and help you to develop at every stage of your career.
In many areas CPPE will be working in collaboration with Royal Pharmaceutical Society Local Practice Forums to run workshops, ‘Revalidation: helping you to revalidate and improve patient safety’, to support revalidation. The events will be promoted locally by CPPE and Local Practice Forums.
