GPhC Fitness to Practise

We are a leading General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC) Defence Barrister’s chambers with vast experience defending pharmacists and pharmacy technicians facing fitness to practise proceedings before the GPhC.

We have years of experience in acting for and representing pharmacists and pharmacy technicians in all matters and stages relating practise proceedings before the GPhC including:

  • Applications for professional registration and appeals against decisions
  • Advising on investigations and, where appropriate, interviews under caution
  • Representation at interim orders hearings
  • Written submissions to the investigating committee
  • Representation before the fitness to practise committee
  • Appeals against fitness to practice committee decisions

Pharmacy Students & Fitness to Practise

The standards set by General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC) expected of registered pharmacists apply equally to pharmacy students.  A finding of impaired fitness to practise could have lasting and significant implications for pharmacy students.

We act for, and represent, pharmacy students facing competency, conduct and other fitness to practise proceedings.
