Registering as a Pharmacy Technician - Online application opens 21st January 2020

The GPhC are planning to open online applications to register as a pharmacy technician through the myGPhC system next Tuesday 21st January 2020. This will replace the current paper form, which will no longer be available after the online application is live. The GPhC will accept paper applications they receive until 21st February 2020.

While the information that trainees will need to provide will not change, the GPhC hopes that the online application will be easier and clearer , and that the GPhC will be able to process the majority of applications more quickly.

What this means to you:
