Boots logoRPS endorsed logo

In 2015 The Haemochromatosis Society, working with Boots UK Pharmacists, developed and produced a training guide to genetic haemochromatosis (GH). This is now one of Boots UK training modules for their pharmacists and pharmacy technicians.

In 2017 this document was endorsed by The Royal Pharmaceutical Society.

Philip Tordoff, Clinical Governance Manager at Boots UK commented; “It is fantastic to work with a specialist organisation like The Haemochromatosis Society to create professional training modules that are accessible to our healthcare professionals, who continually seek to develop their capability in order to make a huge difference to people’s lives.”

David Head, Chief Executive at THS, added; “We are very proud to have worked with Boots on this training material and to have produced material of such high quality that we were able to secure endorsement by The Royal Pharmaceutical Society. It is so important that pharmacists understand how GH presents and this will help us reach the major pharmacy chains as well as independent pharmacies across the UK”

The training material is being made freely available to all by the society and can be opened or downloaded by clicking on the image below.
