The General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC) is the independent regulator for pharmacists, pharmacy technicians and pharmacy premises in the UK. Before you start the qualifying process you should carefully consider information provided by the UK Visas and Immigration to see whether you will be able to get the necessary work visas. Long-term work visas include the Skilled Worker visa. Please refer to the UK government website for full details. Unfortunately, the UKBPA are unable to answer questions about these issues.
