Flu Vaccination Training Pharmacists



72.3% of community pharmacies delivered a flu vaccination service in 2018/19.

Voyager Medical's team of dedicated prescribing pharmacists offer face to face and online flu vaccine training to any GPhC registered pharmacist within the UK.

Our training is different from other providers in that it is:

  • Exclusively delivered by GPhC registered practising pharmacists. Our phone support also comes from the same team!
  • Includes 5 common PGDs, which align with the trainer! Our inclusive PGDs are untethered, meaning pharmacists can use the PGD in multiple locations.
  • Training videos of a pharmacist working in a real pharmacy with real patients. We film all of our training material in a real-life GPhC registered pharmacy.

?Pharmacist Flu Training Course Content

Our flu training course content includes:

  • Patient consultation process
  • Gaining and documenting consent

Why train your staff to deliver flu vaccines in your pharmacy?

It is a specification of the NHS nationally commissioned pharmacy influenza service that healthcare professionals have to have face to face CPR and Anaphylaxis training every three years. We recommend, in addition, that every season the pharmacist should also pass a short competency test on new NHS updates to ensure they are ready for the new season. Below are some of our online training materials:

PGD Hub

In 2017 Voyager Medical released the first-ever community pharmacy VR training experience via the hubnet.io. The video features Mike Bereza and Jignesh Patel, working at Douglas Pharmacy, Angel and RoPharm, Plaistow, London UK. The video was filmed in 2K on an LG 360, it took three days to film and 20 hours to edit by the team at Voyager Medical. The video shows an introduction to the technology by Mike, then gives a virtual tour of the consultation rooms at Douglas and RoPharm.

To make the most of this experience, we recommend you click the YouTube icon at the bottom right of the viewing screen and watch the video direct from YouTube. This way if you are watching on your phone you can switch into Google Cardboard mode, you can then watch this using any enabled headset, this package comes free with every influenza (Seasonal) package purchased from us.
