Date must be set for registration assessment

The General Pharmaceutical Council has confirmed the provider for the rescheduled registration assessment. Responding to the GPhC’s update on the assessment, Gail Fleming, RPS Director of Education, said:

“It’s still very disappointing that the GPhC is not able to provide trainees with a definite date for the delayed assessment.  This remains a very difficult situation for those affected and RPS continues to support them. 

“Whilst we welcome this latest communication from the GPhC as a step in the right direction, we continue to push for quicker action to set an exact date to provide certainty to those who will be sitting the exam. Information about the format of the assessment including resources and the arrangements for reasonable adjustments is needed now to alleviate the ongoing concerns of many trainees.”
