GPhC Chief Executive Duncan Rudkin said:
“I want to congratulate the trainees who passed this year’s registration assessment and wish them well for their future careers. I also want to acknowledge the hard work of tutors and education and training providers in helping trainees prepare for this important step.
“The registration assessment allows us to test that pre-registration trainee pharmacists can demonstrate that they understand how to apply their knowledge appropriately and make professional judgements in pharmacy practice. By only registering those who pass this challenging assessment, we can provide assurance to patients and the public that the pharmacists on our register can practise safely and effectively.”
