Recently qualified pharmacists who have passed their pre-registration exams and are now registered with the GPhC, can upgrade from an Associate pre-registration trainee to Member for the reduced price of £8 a month. Plus:

  • demonstrate your commitment to your profession to colleagues and employers by displaying the letters MRPharmS after your name
  • gain access to a range of support tools to help you transition fully from trainee to pharmacist
  • you'll also receive a copy of the latest MEP.

What happens if I don't upgrade my membership?

If you become eligible to upgrade to another category of membership and do not then your membership will lapse.

We recommend that you upgrade before your membership lapses to avoid disruption to benefits and services - such as access to RPS Support and your weekly copy of the Pharmaceutical Journal.
