Setting Professional Standards


Our professional standards define what good practice and systems look like, for the whole profession.

The best standards support you to better your own practice. But they also challenge you to push yourself, your team and your organisation, to improve today’s services, shape future services and deliver high-quality patient care across all settings and sectors.

NICE has accredited the process we use to produce our standards, competency frameworks and guidance, validating our robust approach.

Here's an RPS and GPhC joint statement Using standards to help provide safe and effective care for members of the public, which demonstrates the importance of using and applying professional standards.

Spread the cost of your membership

With the recent cost of living rises, we’re all making savings wherever we can – and you can do the same with your RPS membership.

Instead of paying for everything all at once, make life easier by paying monthly. After all, you use your RPS membership benefits all year round, so it makes sense to pay for them the same way.

With monthly Direct Debit, you only have a small, regular payment each month. It’s the easy way to keep practicing at your best, without making a hole in your finances!
