A Pharmacy Premises is a location where medicinal drugs are dispensed and sold.
The General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC) maintains a register of Pharmacy Premises if the principal activity at the premises is the retail sale or supply of Pharmacy (P) medicines and / or Prescription Only Medicines (POMs). They are not primarily concerned with NHS Prescriptions.
Once a Pharmacy Premises is registered with the General Pharmaceutical Council it is allocated a registration number which uniquely identifies each registered Pharmacy Premises. This registration number is a 7 digit number starting with the number 1.
The Organisation Data Service allocates the following codes:
