The General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC) has extended the revalidation deadline, giving pharmacists due to submit their revalidation by 31 October an extra week to do so, following technical issues with its website.

Pharmacists that were due to revalidate by the end of October now have until 11:59pm on Tuesday 7 November 2023 to submit their revalidation.

And the regulator apologised for the ‘technical issues’ affecting access to the revalidation website myGPhC.

‘We’ll provide a further update tomorrow. In the meantime, we’ve extended the deadline for those due to submit their renewal or revalidation by 31 October to 11:59pm on Tuesday 7 November 2023,’ GPhC added in a post on X (formerly Twitter).

Following technical issues that were preventing many pharmacists from being able to submit their revalidation over the last few days, the regulator confirmed earlier today that the website is now 'up and running' but pharmacists ‘may experience delays’.

Amid difficulties accessing the website, many registrants called for the deadline to be extended.

This came after several days of many pharmacists being unable to submit their renewal and revalidation.
