Retention of data

Data for Skills for MURs registration and pass/fail data will be held until 2025 and from there on for a period of six years after the end of the academic year in which the student registered. We keep the data in a secure location with strictly limited access. We keep the data for a long period of time because we are the primary collector of the data. Requests for confirmation of pass / fail information come to the Medway School of Pharmacy from the GPhC, NHS England, the University of Kent and the University of Greenwich. Pharmacists are required to register their MUR accreditation with NHS England and NHS England may need to confirm pass/fail data with the Medway School of Pharmacy. The accreditation confers the legal right to pharmacists to conduct the Medicines Use Review and the Prescription Intervention Service, specified as an Advanced Service in the 2013 community pharmacy contract for England. We hold the Master data lists and provide confirmation of students' MUR statuses to both the University of Greenwich and the University of Kent on demand.
