The General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC) is the statutory regulator for pharmacists, pharmacy technicians and pharmacies in Great Britain. Our main job is to protect, promote and maintain the health and safety of the public by upholding standards and public trust in pharmacy.
With a background of significant change in healthcare, pharmacy is a rapidly evolving and developing profession with increasing clinical responsibilities in caring for patients and the public. This creates opportunities for patients and the sector, but also risks and challenges which we as the regulator must respond to effectively. It is in this exciting context that we are seeking five members from a diverse range of professional and personal backgrounds to join our governing council to help shape our strategic ambitions for the future, and have a positive impact on patients and wider society that benefits from safe and effective pharmacy care.
We are looking for three members to join us in April 2024 and two in April 2025. Two of the new Council members starting in 2024 must be lay members of the public and one must be a registrant of the GPhC, and at least one of the three must live or work wholly or mostly in Wales. One of the new members starting in 2025 must a lay member and one must be a registrant member. Please follow the link below to read the candidate information pack which contains more detail on what we are looking for, and how to apply.
We value diversity and want to promote it on our Council. It is vital that our Council members are drawn from the widest possible talent pools, bringing with them different life experiences, ideas, and perspectives, to inform our discussions and decisions. We welcome and encourage applications from a diverse range of candidates, from all sections of the community.
