The GPhC has published their Vision 2030 which sets out a 10-year vision for safe and effective pharmacy care at the heart of healthier communities.
They have also published their Strategic Plan 2020-25 which sets out the work we plan to do in the coming five years to help us achieve our 10-year vision.
The GPhC has said that the Vision 2030 document will focus their efforts on the difference they want to make for patients and the public. They have said that the Vision will help them to anticipate and respond to significant developments that affect pharmacy and the pharmacy sector, including advances in science and technology and further integration of health and social care, as well as the current coronavirus pandemic.
The GPhC has set out a Strategic Plan 2020-2025 for delivery across five priority areas:
- Delivering an adaptable standards framework that meets rapidly changing public and professional needs;
- Delivering effective, consistent and fair regulation;
- Driving improvements in pharmacy care through modernising our regulation of education and training;
- Shifting the balance towards more anticipatory, proportionate and tailored approaches to regulating pharmacy;
- Enhancing our capabilities and infrastructure to deliver our Vision.
General Pharmaceutical Council Chair Nigel Clarke, said:
“During the current COVID-19 pandemic, our focus is on ensuring patients and the public continue to receive safe and effective care.
“Both our Vision and Strategic Plan, while developed prior to the pandemic, have helped guide our response to COVID-19 and will continue to direct our work in the future. We wanted to publish them now to underline our commitment to high-quality independent pharmacy regulation and to outline the regulatory and operational measures we will undertake to help us achieve our vision.”
