Pharmacy Technicians

  • Pharmacy Technicians are pharmacy professionals who play an integral part in helping patients to make the most of their medicines.
  • They undertake the technical aspects of medicines management e.g. checking inhaler technique, synchronising medicines, reviewing repeat prescribing and are often involved with prescribing audits within GP Practices.
  • These roles are developing rapidly and in some areas pharmacy technicians are taking on prescribing data analysis roles and treatment reviews within a set protocol.
  • In order to become a pharmacy technician you'll need to complete an accredited course before registering with the regulator, the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC).
