Revalidation

As a representative organisation with 27,000 pharmacist members the PDA is keen to support our 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.

Things to do to start your revalidation cycle:

  1. Make sure that the GPhC has your correct contact details so that you receive relevant emails and letters.
  2. Look out for a letter from GPhC containing a PIN code and instructions on how to set up your new account on the new MyGPhC website. Letters will be sent from April onwards and staggered according to renewal dates.
  3. Set up your account on the MyGPhC website: www.mygphc.org
  4. Start recording your four pieces of CPD at www.mygphc.org

Revalidation requirements

The key source data and information can all be found on the GPhC website and we would encourage all members to go there first. There are videos, templates, a copy of the Revalidation Framework, a revalidation timeline so that all members can find out deadlines for submission  of documents and much more :
