Principle 1. Governance
The pharmacy adequately manages the risks associated with its services. It generally keeps the records it needs to by law, so it can show that supplies are made safely and legally. People who use the pharmacy can provide feedback and the pharmacy team have received training to help protect the welfare of vulnerable people. When a dispensing mistake occurs, team members react appropriately.

The pharmacy has enough team members for the services it provides. Team members are provided with time at work to complete ongoing training and have access to a range of resources to help keep their skills and knowledge up to date.

|The pharmacy has met all the standards for registered pharmacies|

What does 'pharmacy has not met all standards' mean?
When a pharmacy has not met all standards, they are required to complete an improvement action plan, which you can find via a link at the top left of this page. We monitor progress to check the improvements are made and inspect again after six months to make sure the pharmacy is maintaining these improvements. A new report will then be published.
