Pre-registration Trainee Pharmacists

To practice as a pharmacist, you have to be registered with the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC). To register, you need to study for an accredited Masters degree in pharmacy (MPharm) and complete a pre-registration year.

Your Pre-registration Year

The pre-registration year is aimed at supporting the transition from pharmacy student to registered qualified pharmacist. In order to fulfil this goal you will be required to demonstrate that you have the requisite knowledge, skills and attitudes and that they can be applied in a practice setting. This pre-registration training aims to support your development to become a competent and confident practising pharmacist. The training can be undertaken in hospital, community or split placement formats (e.g. hospital with CCG/GP).

GPhC Performance Standards

The General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC) requires you to undertake a training period of at least 52 weeks in order to demonstrate your competence against a range of practical and professional criteria known as “Performance Standards”. The standards ensure that newly registered pharmacists are competent to practice safely and effectively. Providing you meet these standards you will be eligible to sit the registration examination in order to join the register of practising pharmacists.
