Course Overview

  • They come with a 24/7 prescriber clinical support line
  • Access to risk assessment and SOP(s)

Private influenza PGD is available at a cost of £15 + VAT.

Travel core PGD package is available from Voyager medical. If you require underpinning knowledge for Travel vaccinations, this is included within the PGD package with Voyager Medical .

Our courses are designed in line with the National Minimum Standards and Core Curriculum for Immunisation Training for Registered Healthcare Practitioners. Our practical training is delivered by community pharmacists who are experienced in delivering vaccinations in pharmacy together with our team of first aid instructors.

Supervised Clinical Practice

In addition to completing comprehensive foundation Immunisation training, new immunisers should also have a period of supervised practice with a registered healthcare practitioner who is experienced, up to date and competent in immunisation.

You may also wish to consider supervised practice if a long duration of time has passed since you last delivered vaccinations to patients.

If you require support with supervised clinical practice, please contact us:

"I found the Buttercups flu vaccination training to be the most comprehensive and relevant package I've encountered to date, our Pharmacists were unanimous in praise of the Buttercups seasonal flu vaccination training"

Chris Skitterall - Head of Professional Services - Hollowood Chemists Ltd

"I found the Buttercups Flu training not only informative but enjoyable to. The bitesize modules help one digest the information in manageable amounts. The end of sections tests really help you prepare for the end assessment. I have nothing but praise for the course."
