The NPA continues its partnership with leading training provider ECG Training, to deliver its vaccination training and PGD packages.
Patient Group Directions (PGDs) enable pharmacists to supply and administer specified medicines to pre-defined groups of patients without a prescription.
ECG delivers expert-led face-to-face training sessions and online learning across a wide range of locations in the UK for flu, travel, vaccination and non-vaccination PGDs.
Louise Baglole, NPA’s Director of Professional Services and Development said: “The pricing remains competitive, as the majority of our packages include the PGD as well as the training, with discounts available for members and associate pharmacists/technicians.
“ECG’s partnership with Pharmadoctor means you can be provided with all you require to maximise your clinical services, from training, eTools and paper PGDs, to full marketing and advertising support. The NPA also has business partners who can help drive customers to your pharmacy.
She added: “ECG’s customer service support also helps with any query you may have and there are delegate resources on their website.”
For this year’s programme participants can get a blended Clinical Assessment course to support services that covers skills such as medical history taking, BP measurement and ear/throat examinations.
NPA members can also purchase a discounted ‘Unlimited Clinic PGD package’ which includes access to over 60 services (including the travel package) and any associated online training.
With travel now opening up, ECG is also offering two new Travel Health training options to support those who already have PGDs in place.
