Declaration of Competence Model

The Declaration of Competence (DoC) system has been developed to support registered pharmacy professionals in assuring commissioners that they are service-ready and have the appropriate knowledge, skills and behaviours to deliver high-quality, consistent services. Many commissioners are now including the DoC system in their service specifications, service level agreements and patient group directions.


CPPE have produced a useful factsheet about the Declaration of Competence model. See here and further information for community pharmacy professionals is available here.


Registered pharmacy professionals are personally responsible for keeping knowledge and skills up to date and relevant to roles and responsibilities. Working through the DoC system supports pharmacy professionals with the resources to reflect on current competences, and to identify and meet learning and assessment needs to deliver a specific service that is being commissioned.


For more information see the CPPE website at https://www.cppe.ac.uk/services/declaration-of-competence.
