  • superintendent qualifications

    Hi,
    Can anyone tell me where I can find the requirements, such as time since qualification, that a pharmacist must have to act as a superintendent?
    Thanks,
    ChopperT

      3 years experience as a qualified pharmacist is a requirement.

        Only UK graduates can be superintendents of pharmacies under 3 years old, as far as I know..

          This is incorrect - there are no formal requirements to be met to become a Superintendent apart from being registered and in good standing with the Royal Pharmaceutical Society. However, a pharmacist can only be Superintendent of one Corporate Body/Limited Company at a time.

          The nomination form and guidance notes are available at: (http://www.rpsgb.org/pdfs/regnomsupform.pdf)

          The restrictions on personal control are detailed at: (http://www.rpsgb.org/pdfs/LEBrestrictsperscontrol.pdf) and as Lamzee rightly points out pharmacists that qualified overseas but are registered in the UK are not eligible to be in personal control of a pharmacy open for less than 3 years.

              Am I correct in thinking that a pharmacist who qualified in India but then completed OSPAP and the prereg year and is now fully registered is able to act as the superintendent on a pharmacy opening application ie for a pharmacy that has been open less than 3 years?

                As I interpret the regulations, to be in control of a pharmacy which has been open less than three years, the pharmacist must have qualified and registered in the UK.

                Believe this is a European requirement to prevent overseas nationals (ie non EU) opening pharmacies in Europe.

                    Does that mean a Pharmacist qualified overseas cannot open his own Pharmacy after registering???

                    Please clarify.

                    Thanks.

                      Sounds like it. But he could get a friend who does meet regs to act as figurehead super.
