Training Date – Pharmacy Flu Vaccination Advanced Service 2016-2017

5th September 2016 7pm - 10.30pm

Narrowcliff Surgery, Narrowcliff, Newquay, TR7 2QF

Cornwall and Isles of Scilly LPC are working in partnership with the NPA to provide training and support for any pharmacist wishing to be able to deliver the recently announced NHS Advanced Flu Service that all community pharmacies are eligible to provide from September this year.

This training is open to all pharmacists regardless of NPA membership.

IMPORTANT DISCLAIMER:  It remains the personal and professional responsibility of the pharmacist, in all cases, to ensure that they are trained, confident and competent to offer the flu vaccination service including treatment of anaphylaxis and resuscitation techniques; the pharmacist must decide for themselves whether they should undergo the full vaccination training or the online refresher in view of this.

The full training covers intramuscular, subcutaneous, intranasal and intradermal vaccination techniques; basic life support and anaphylaxis management and access to the private PGDs.

The training will take place on Monday 5th September at the Board Room at Narrowcliff Surgery, Narrowcliff, Newquay, TR7 2QF from   7 pm to 10.30 pm.  A light buffet will be served at 6.30 pm.

Please let Phillip know you wish to attend on or ring 07734056305, who will supply you with a form to fill out prior to the training. Please inform any locums who may wish to provide the service of this training.

The cost of the training is £85 plus VAT. An invoice will be sent to you direct from the NPA when you have registered.

Prior to attending the practical session it is essential to complete the NPA online learning + assessments.

You will be sent the link to the NPA online assessment by email after the NPA has received payment for the practical training.
