Royal Pharmaceutical Society launches updated patient safety professional standards

The Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS) has published updated professional standards to support pharmacists, pharmacy technicians and pharmacy teams in responding to patient safety incidents.

Created in collaboration with the Association of Pharmacy Technicians UK (APTUK) and the Pharmacy Forum Northern Ireland (PFNI), the Patient safety professional standards: responding to patient safety incidents are designed to support pharmacy professionals to meet regulatory standards.

The standards, published on 24 April 2024, reflect new legislation and updated guidance from the General Pharmaceutical Council and NHS England, replacing the previous standards published in 2016.

They also provide a framework for reflecting, reporting and recording incidents, and sharing learning, taking action and reviewing and evaluating incidents as part of a patient safety culture.
