CPPE Declaration of Competence (DOC)

CPPE have now launched their new DOC for pharmacy flu service.Previously, there have been two separate DoC frameworks for vaccinations; the NHS Seasonal Influenza Vaccination Advanced Service and other locally commissioned Immunisation services.This meant that those providing the NHS service along with a locally commissioned influenza service were required to complete two DoCs.

Those two DoCs have now been merged and a new single DoC framework has been developed for all vaccination services.
