Review of Numark Standard Operating Procedures – February 2024
Numark has over 120 downloadable SOPs available for members to download.
Each SOP defines the processes and procedures within the pharmacy. Numark SOPs are word documents allowing members to amend the content to ensure it accurately reflects the practice within their pharmacy.
Each SOP includes a document information section as shown below. This section provides an audit trail for each SOP.

|Reason for review or amendment
During 2024 Numark Information Services will be reviewing each of the SOPs to ensure they comply with current legislation and professional guidance.
To support members with identifying the SOPs that have been reviewed the SOP version number will be incorporated into the SOP title and will be clearly visible from the SOP download list. This will allow Numark members to compare the SOP currently in use within their pharmacy and the version available for download from NumarkNet.
Members can ensure that their audit trail is consistent with the Numark version control by adopting a decimal version e.g. for Numark version 1.0, the member version would become 1.1 with the name of the pharmacy team member adapting the SOP recorded against this version.
