Pharmacists will not undergo independent prescriber training when they begin the new national foundation training year in 2021, the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC) has confirmed. Earlier this year, a letter from the GPhC, as well as the four UK chief pharmaceutical officers stated that the current pre-registration year would be substituted with a national foundation year, to improve initial education and training, starting from summer 2021.

“Pharmacists will not undergo independent prescriber training when they begin foundation training in 2021. “

However, the latest update stated that the goal was for students, who start their MPharm degree in the future, to be independent prescribers before they join the register.
