Royal Pharmaceutical Society Accreditation Service
About the service
The RPS Accreditation service ensures healthcare professionals, many of whom may be RPS members, can identify the best available resources to support them with promoting and developing high quality professional practice, to enable them to contribute to raising standards in pharmacy, medicines management and patient care.
Our accreditation involves the evaluation of materials by reviewers who have the appropriate professional expertise and experience in the relevant subject matter, training and development.
