training covering:

Multiple vaccination techniques for administering vaccines through different routes (intramuscular, intranasal and subcutaneous)

Basic life support + Management of anaphylaxis + Paediatric training

Login details will be sent to you for online training covering the above (which needs to be completed as well as the practical face-to-face training), with more information specific to your chosen PGDs.

PGDs and certificates are only available to download through the portal once you have passed and completed the online training (with the exception of flu which is released in September).

Refresher training –  required every year that practical training is not undertaken.

Online training covering:

Basic life support + management of anaphylaxis + Paediatric training

Clinical learning for PGDs + assessment

PGDs and certificates are only available to download through the portal once you have completed and passed the online training (with the exception of flu which is released in September).

*Please note that although the new requirement for face-to-face vaccination training is now every three years to provide the NHS flu service (except Scotland and Wales), all pharmacists must ensure their competency to administer parenteral vaccinations is assessed and maintained, especially if they also provide other NHS and/or private vaccination services.

In the event of a patient safety incident, as part of the incident investigation, the pharmacist’s vaccination skills competency may be reviewed. Therefore, it is strongly recommended that each pharmacist completes a vaccination skills assessment each year to self-check their own competency to provide vaccination services, both NHS and private. For more information, please refer to our article: Implications for professional indemnity regarding changes to the NHS flu service for 2018/19
