You need to register each foundation trainee pharmacist you are making a payment claim for, entering:

  • their name
  • their date of birth
  • their GPhC registration number
  • their training start date
  • their Designated Supervisor’s name
  • their Designated Supervisor’s GPhC registration number

Payments will be made monthly in arrears, with the first payment covering any months between the time the employer applies for the grant and the time the trainee began their training.

If you experience any technical issues with the MYS portal, email
