SOPs

Numark has over 80 downloadable Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) available for members to download.

Each SOP defines the processes and procedures within the pharmacy.

Numark SOPs are word documents allowing members to amend the content to ensure it accurately reflects the practice within their pharmacy.

A template SOP is also available for members providing bespoke or locally commissioned services who need to devise their own SOPs; this will ensure that all SOPs within the pharmacy retain a consistent appearance.

Over the last twelve months all Numark SOPs have been reviewed to ensure they comply with current legislation and professional guidance.

Standard Operating Procedures should be reviewed regularly within the pharmacy. We recommend that SOP reviews should be undertaken every year but an interim review would be required following:

  • Legislation changes
  • Operational changes within the pharmacy
  • Staffing changes
  • Significant events or incidents

Following a review the initial version of the SOP should be retained within the pharmacy for a period of 15 years. To facilitate the review of SOPs within pharmacy the updated Numark SOPs include a section detailing document information.

Reason for review or amendment

Members are encouraged to adopt the document information section to provide an audit trail for each SOP within the pharmacy. This evidence of review is beneficial for inspections such as GPhC premises standards inspections and CPAF reviews.

Members can ensure that their audit trail is consistent with the Numark version control by adopting a decimal version e.g. for Numark version 1.0, the member version would become 1.1 with the name of the pharmacy team member adapting the SOP recorded against this version.

Numark members who have any questions or concerns regarding SOPs should contact Information Services on 0800 783 5709 option 2.
