Registration renewal fees remain untouched for the third year in a row, the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC) has announced.

The GPhC has decided to keep pharmacists' registration renewal fees at £250 for 2018/19, it said yesterday (8 March).

Meanwhile, pharmacy premises fees will remain at £241 and fees for pharmacy technicians will stay at £118.

The GPhC increased its fees in 2015 to 'meet the growing costs of regulation', said GPhC chief executive Duncan Ruskin at the time.
