NHS England has determined that pharmacists providing the Flu Vaccination Service need to attend face-to-face training for both injection technique and basic life support training every two years. UK Pharmacists who will provide the Flu Vaccination Service must therefore complete practical training in vaccination that meets the requirements relevant to the role. This training workshop will provide our pharmacists with the skills required to deliver this service.

The face-to-face component of the course is a 4-hour workshop that will cover the following:
• Intramuscular (I.M.) Injection technique.
• Sub-cutaneous (S.C.) Injection technique.
• Intranasal (I.N.) immunisation technique.
• Reconstitution technique etc.

Details of the training workshop are as follows:
Date: November 14, 2018 ( Wednesday)

We can only take a small batch of pharmacists as we need to practice our skill on site. If interested, please send your details to our email with full name, membership number, mobile number and where you work. We will confirm you by email accordingly.

Let's unite together and prepare ourselves for the challenges ahead.
