Special conditions relevant during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
Usually only pharmacists who are fully registered with the General Pharmaceutical Council can apply for SCR access. However, we understand difficulties in upgrading from pre-registered to fully registered during the pandemic. Therefore, we agree to accept applications from the new interim GPhC registration status of Provisionally registered (not pre-registered). If you are provisionally registered, your access will be granted on a 12 month temporary basis until your status turns from provisionally registered to fully registered.
We understand provisionally registered pharmacists circumstances will change during that 12 months and individuals in that category should inform of any change in circumstances that could mean you have been removed from the provisional register. The following 2 instances in particular
- You do not successfully complete GPhC assessments and are removed from the Provisional register. If this occurs you should contact your local RA and have them remove your SCR access because you will no longer be eligible.
- If you become fully registered, you will need to reapply using the application form in the link below. This is so you can continue to access SCR post Covid and at your designated ODS codes.
Please only apply if you appear on the provisional register or are fully registered. Pre-registrant applicant are not being accepted at this time.
