Revalidation reminder to members

The PDA has received a significant number of enquiries from members who have received letters and/or emails entitled “Notification of removal from the GPhC register for non-revalidation compliance”.

Tue 5th February 2019 The PDA

We would like to remind our members that since 31 October 2018, every time a pharmacist renews their registration with the GPhC, they must ensure that before they complete the associated declarations, they have submitted records to show how they have carried out and recorded revalidation activities via the myGPhC online system.

Although only selected records are reviewed by the GPhC, they are all checked automatically to ensure that the right number and types of records have been submitted.

We would advise all our members to:

  • Make sure that the GPhC has your correct contact details so that you receive relevant emails and letters
  • Complete all necessary revalidation entries using the myGPhC online system in a timely manner and before your declaration and renewal is due
  • Confirm that your records have been submitted: you should receive confirmation of receipt in the ‘notifications’ section of the myGPhC website. You can also review ‘past submissions’ on the revalidation page of myGPhC
  • If you are not sure whether your records have submitted correctly, then contact the GPhC at the earliest opportunity
  • If you are not able to submit all of the records because you have taken sick leave, maternity leave or a break from practice, for example, you should inform the GPhC before your renewal is due, and provide evidence as to why you were unable to make the submission on time

The PDA is keen to support members to engage with the new revalidation requirements successfully. We believe that a workforce actively engaged in continual professional development is a workforce which will not only gain greater job satisfaction, but will improve patient care and safety for the benefit of all.

More information can be found here. We also have a dedicated email address where our members can get advice on revalidation concerns and problems: revalidation@the-pda.org
