PSNI freezes pharmacist registration and retention fees for 2023/24

The Pharmaceutical Society NI (PSNI)’s Council has decided to freeze the annual registration fee for the current financial year 2023/24.

The annual registration fee is considered each year by the PSNI’s council. At its meeting in November 2022, Council members in recognition of the effects of the
Covid-19 pandemic, the personal and professional impact of the cost of living crisis on pharmacists, and the overall cost of regulation agreed to maintain
registration fees at their current level for the next financial year.

Pharmaceutical Society NI’s Chief Executive Michaela McAleer said: “I am pleased with Council’s decision to continue the freeze on registration fees for the 7th
successive year. We are acutely aware of the pressures facing the pharmacy profession and hope this can provide some reassurance to the profession as we deal with
these financially difficult times.
