Membership FAQs

How do I know which is the right membership package for me?

Take look at the different categories of membership we have on offer. If you’re unsure, please don’t hesitate to get in touch and we’ll help you.

Why do you do identification checks?

It’s important for us to protect our members and ourselves by ensuring that all our members are genuine healthcare professionals. That means that once you are a member you know that you can be honest and comfortable with sharing information within a safe and supportive environment.

It can take our membership coordinator 2 – 3 working days to send you your identification check link.  Please check your junk and spam folders to avoid your application being delayed.


Are there any discounts available for students?

Yes, student membership is free! Membership is also free for trainee pharmacists, and we offer a discount for newly qualified pharmacists.

What happens if I take a break from practice (such as maternity leave)?

If you are taking a break from practice and would like to suspend your membership, just get in touch with us and we’ll talk you through your options.

I’m practicing overseas, can I still be a member?

Yes, of course! Just select our Non-UK Pharmacist membership category.

I’m not a pharmacist, can I still be a member?

Yes, we would love to welcome you to UKCPA if you are a non-pharmacy healthcare professional (such as a nurse, doctor or dentist).

How long will activation of my membership take?

We aim to have your membership activated within 7 days.  Please ensure you provide as much information when completing your application and respond to our security check as soon as you can.
