PRAQ Pharmacy Registration Assessment Questions 2nd preface

After the overwhelming success of our first four volumes of Registration Exam Questions, a decision was made to launch a new series named Pharmacy Registration Assessment Questions (PRAQ). This new series hopes to incorporate questions that are aligned to the new GPhC Framework and incorporate a similar style of questions as recently announced by the GPhC for the Registration Assessment. In this second edition of volume 1, there are updated questions, some new questions and all questions have been cross-referenced with the latest sources at the time of writing. This book is a bank of just over 400 questions, which are similar to the style of the registration examination. The questions are based on law and ethics, and clinical pharmacy and therapeutic aspects of the registration examination syllabus, as well as pharmaceutical calculations. After completing four years of study and graduating with a Master of Pharmacy (MPharm) degree, graduates are required to undertake training as a pre-registration pharmacist before they can sit the registration examination. Pre-registration training is the period of employment on which graduates must embark and effectively complete before they can register as a pharmacist in the UK. In most cases it is a one-year period following the pharmacy degree; for sandwich course students it is integrated within the undergraduate programme. On successfully passing the registration examination, pharmacy graduates can register as a pharmacist in the UK.

Why this Book?

To practice in the UK, pharmacists and pharmacy technicians must be registered with the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPHC) and we are satisfied that they meet our needs.

Anyone who is not registered with the GPHC but acts as a pharmacist or pharmacy technician, or refers to himself or herself, is breaking the law and can be prosecuted.

Pharmacies must also be registered with the GPHC (or the pharmacy department at a hospital or health centre) to work in the UK and use the title ‘Pharmacy’.

Pharmacists, pharmacy technicians and registered pharmacies are required to renew their registration with us each year, including completing a declaration stating that they meet all of our professional, fitness and ethical standards.
