GPhC Update: supply of COVID-19 tests from pharmacies

The General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC) has updated their position on supplying different types of COVID-19 tests from pharmacies in Great Britain. They are no longer asking community pharmacies not to provide rapid/ point of care/ near-person antibody tests for COVID-19.

Pharmacy owners or pharmacy professionals are expected to carefully consider whether it is appropriate to offer this type of test, or other type of COVID-19 test. Providers are expected to carry out a full risk assessment. The GPhC guidance includes examples of what pharmacy owners should consider when preparing their risk assessment.

Further information can be found in the GPhC news story and updated guidance.
