Clinical Governance

The following webpage contains a copy of the most recent GPhC inspection and Community Pharmacy Assurance Frameworks. It details out the requirements of GPhC registered, NHS contracted pharmacies and how the digital HubNet solution meets and exceeds all governance requirements allowing pharmacies finally to become truly paperless.

Pharmacy Clinical Governance online


The Inspection decision-making framework is essentially a checklist of what the GPhC expects from a licensed pharmacy. To summarise the requirements the GPhC lists “Five Principles”…

GPhC Five Principles

The 5 Principles, essentially, describe best practice arrangements for safe and effective pharmacy practice. They include the following:

  • Principle 1 – looks at how a pharmacy identifies and manages risks.
  • Principle 2 – looks at staffing issues.
  • Principle 3 – is about the pharmacy premises.
  • Principle 4 – is about how pharmacy staff deliver services.
  • Principle 5 – is about pharmacy equipment and facilities.

These principles are then broken down further into the following GPhC Inspection Checklist. Since its inception, the HubNet system has aimed to target every point on the checklist with one goal, to exceed its requirements. We do this in a number of ways if you would like to have a look please see our modified GPhC Inspection Check List which compares what we offer to what is expected.


Community Pharmacy Assurance Framework

The second document comes from NHS commissioners and details out what the NHS expects of your business. Again we have taken each point and addressed them with novel solutions, have a look at our modified CPAF checklist for more information.
