7 reviews for New to Immunisation for RHCPs – Elearning

  1. Johnathan Smith

    Very engaging. Covered everything in easy to follow format. Submitting a video assessment was so much easier than having to arrange face to face assessment. As either none are available or only available ones are too far away. Eg My nearest one was in Birmingham, and I live in Liverpool. My staff and I feel that if anyone else was in a similar situation need we would point them to this course .

  2. Juliet Quine

    A great course – so much to learn but this course provides all of the theory you need before you start vaccinating. Presented in an interesting way with lots of different interaction. What I liked most was that I now have links to all of the background information and resources that I need, I don’t have to search around the internet wondering if I have all of the relevant documents.

  3. Keri Hartwright

    Great course! All good!

  4. Lucy Dashfield-Omrod
