Part 2 – Right of Appeal

« Read Part 1 (Registration)

« Read Part 3 (How to appeal)

The Pharmacy Order 2010 sets out the processes that the General Pharmaceutical Council must follow in determining an application to join the register.  The Order also sets out the rights of appeal if you are not satisfied with the decision made by the General Pharmaceutical Council.

Specifically, article 39 of the 2010 Order sets out the decisions by the General Pharmaceutical Council that are appealable.  These are decisions by the General Pharmaceutical Council:

  1. not to exempt a person from the requirement to complete an adaptation period, or pass an aptitude test, before deciding whether that person is “appropriately qualified”;
  2. to refuse to enter a person in the register as a pharmacist or a pharmacy technician;
  3. to refuse to renew an entry of a registrant;
  4. to refuse to renew the entry of a visiting practitioner;
  5. to refuse to enter, renew or restore an annotation in any part of the Register in respect of a specialisation;
  6. to remove an annotation in respect of a specialisation from any part of the Register;
  7. to remove the entry of a registrant or a registered pharmacy;
  8. to refuse an application for restoration of a person’s entry of the Register (if the decision is for a reason that does not relate to a person’s fitness to practise);
  9. to suspend the entry of a registrant in the Register or to remove such an entry from the Register on the ground that the registrant has failed to comply with the requirements or conditions of the Registration assessment framework;
  10. to refuse to approve, or to withdraw approval from, any education, training, qualification, test or institution or other provider or to impose probationary or remedial measures on an institution or other provider;
  11. a decision to refuse to enter premises in Register;
  12. a decision not to restore an entry of premises;
  13. a decision to suspend or remove an entry of premises; and
  14. any other decision that the General Pharmaceutical Council rules permit an appeal to the Appeals Committee.
