National Competency Framework for Primary Care Pharmacy Technicians
The development of a National Competency Framework (NCF) for Primary Care Pharmacy Technicians has been led by APTUK in collaboration
with Primary Care Pharmacy Association.
This NCF is designed to support safe practice and professionalism in primary care, inform the education and training requirements and further the professional development of pharmacy technicians working in primary care.
The framework provides a set of standard core competencies that underpin the knowledge, skills, behaviours and attitudes required for pharmacy
technicians working in and across primary care roles. It is designed to support the safe practice and professionalism required to meet a portfolio of roles across primary care, not limiting to one particular area of practice. It also informs the education and training requirements and provides a basis to further the professional development of pharmacy technicians working in these roles.
