Declaration of competence
The Declaration of Competence (DoC) system has been given national support after a pilot in the North West of England. It is designed to test pharmacists’ and pharmacy technicians’ competence at delivering a certain service and provides evidence of competence to commissioners. The new system replaces the accreditation system used in arrangements with the now defunct primary care trusts. The DoC has been endorsed by Health Education England, NHS England and Public Health England. The website of the Centre for Pharmacy Postgraduate Education contains more information about the system and many of the training programmes and assessments.
