A five year road map setting out how pharmacists and pharmacy technicians can work together is being developed.

 A joint statement from the Royal Pharmaceutical Society and the Association of Pharmacy Technicians UK highlights a number of shared goals, and notes that the organisations have worked collaboratively on many occasions in the past and will continue to do so.

In the new statement, the organisations have committed to “work together to guide and lead both pharmacists and pharmacy technicians to a consensus on roles and responsibilities within an effective and efficient pharmacy team which can only enhance the delivery of quality and safe pharmacy services to patients and the public.

“We will start with developing support for revalidation that we can roll out to all registered pharmacists whilst at the same time consider how pharmacy technicians meet similar requirements of them from the General Pharmaceutical Council ahead of the changes scheduled for 2018 and 2019.”
