The General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC) replaced the Royal Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain (RPSGB) as the regulator for pharmacists, pharmacy technicians and pharmacy premises on 27 September 2010. The General Pharmaceutical Council accredits and recognises pharmacy courses leading to registration and annotation, including Master of Pharmacy (MPharm) degrees leading to pre-registration then pharmacist registration.
Valid entry 15 'General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC)' has been introduced for new and continuing instances who would formerly have been coded 04 'Royal Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain (RPSGB)'.
The Health Professions Council (HPC) replaced the General Social Care Council (GSCC) as the regulator for the social work profession on 1 August 2012. The Health Professions Council (HPC) has been renamed the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) to reflect this new remit.
To facilitate the regulation of social workers in England, it is necessary to identify those whose regulatory body is the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) for that purpose. To that end, a separate valid entry exists to continue the collection of data at a disaggregated level.
Valid entry 08 'Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC): social workers in England' should continue to be used for courses who would formerly have been coded 08 'General Social Care Council (GSCC)'. Likewise, courses which would previously have been coded as 07 should continue to use this code. The label has been changed to 'Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC): excluding social workers in England' to align with the label for code 08, and maintain the coverage of 07 as in previous years.
