PGDs 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, 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.
