Help us to help you

If you have submitted an application recently please do not submit a another. During the Covid – 19 Pandemic some Registration Authorities are experiencing a high number of requests and may not have been able to process your request as soon as they would like or inform you your request has been completed. Please check your card for access. If no access is there please contact quoting the date you applied and the application reference rather than submitting duplicate applications.

If this is your first application, then to assist us in completing your access as soon as possible please ensure the details you submit are accurate - especially ODS Codes.  Please complete all questions.

You must share you CPPE qualification details on the CPPE website so that we can check you qualification. Do not complete this form until you have shared your CPPE qualification. 

If you have not shared your details on the CPPE website please log into your account and go to your preference page, then tick the box to allow your data to be shared with the Registration Authority.

Community Pharmacy Branches:

If you already have SCR enabled on your smartcard you DO NOT need to complete this form. For changes to your smartcard please contact your local RA.

Pharmacist with the short-notice 5F (Locum) Code:

If you already have the 5F (FFFFF) organisational code for short-notice working at various pharmacies and wish to upgrade this to include SCR access please continue with the form.

If you request Locum access you will need to tell us the CGG you work in. This is so that we can direct your application to the correct Registering Agent. Use this link to find the name of your CCG.

Pharmacist without the short-notice 5F (Locum) Code:

If you do not have the 5F code and wish to work at pharmacies at short-notice where it is impractical for access to be assigned prior to attendance, then please contact your local RA with a suitable business case.
