Buttercups Excellence Awards 2018


In recognition of everyone who has been part of the Buttercups journey, Buttercups Training will be hosting the 2018 Excellence Awards Ceremony alongside our 30th anniversary celebration.

The excellence awards are designed to celebrate the hard work and commitment of individuals, both learners and mentors, who go above and beyond their duties to inspire and enhance the future of pharmacy. We value their passion, determination and willingness to improve the standards of education and training for the benefit of their organisations and the health and wellbeing of their local communities.

Since 1988, the Buttercups family have worked in Vanessa’s houses, attics and offices around South Nottinghamshire. From a small team solely providing workshops to pharmacy staff, to a team of over 140 delivering over 25 blended learning courses across all pharmacy sectors, Buttercups has certainly filled that gap in the market. More recently, since October 2017, the training team now work under one roof in a brand new, city centre HQ, Buttercups House.

Despite the transition across the years, Buttercups’ mission has always remained the same; to deliver high quality training programmes to pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, dispensing assistants and support staff working in hospitals, the community, dispensing doctors' practices and the Armed Forces.

We are the largest training provider in the pharmacy sector serving pharmacies from the largest multiples to independents, dispensing doctors, the MOD and NHS Trusts.
