The General Pharmaceutical Council are consulting on the standards for the education and training of pharmacist independent prescribers.

They would like to hear your views on the changes they are proposing to the standards, including:

  • introducing learning outcomes for the standards
  • allowing experienced pharmacist independent prescribers (and other independent prescribers, including doctors) to act as practice prescribing supervisors, and
  • improving the selection of trainee independent prescribers by focusing on the knowledge and skills of applicants and their suitability to train as independent prescribers.
