Everything you need to know about unannounced GPhC inspections

  • It appears to me that someone in the GPhC has visited their Archives and then claimed to have invented a modern method of inspections.
    I qualified in 1965 ago and the unannounced inspection system then was exactly the same then as reported in the article above.( but with less paper work )
    The best advice given to me on staring to work in Community Pharmacy was,
    "Every day run the Pharmacy as though the next person coming in through the door could be the Inspector, and you won't go far wrong"
    If the Pharmacist knows the rules and works to them there is nothing to fear.
    As for publishing the results, well that may make a few more jobs for life at the GPhC, but in reality the best judge of a Pharmacy is the patient coming through the door, if the patient doesn't approve they don't come back.
