Revalidation and CPD for pharmacists

Revalidation aims to keep your skills up to date and demonstrate them to the public. It's an annual GPhC requirement for all pharmacists and pharmacy technicians.

The latest Revalidation requirements can be found on the GPhC website.

You can now transfer all the valuable records saved on your RPS MyCPD directly to ready to submit them for revalidation.

MyCPD lets you save as many records as you like, and we will never delete them.
