Why this service

An increasing number of pharmacies are now offering a Seasonal Health Clinic to expand their range of clinical services offered to customers.

Oseltamivir phosphate (Tamiflu®) is an antiviral medicine that can shorten the length of influenza if taken within 48 hours of initial symptoms appearing and can reduce the chance of infection by up to 50%.

PharmaDoctor's Tamiflu PGD supports pharmacists to conduct consultations with customers who are either concerned that they may have contracted influenza or wish to enhance their protection alongside vaccination. Once influenza diagnosis is confirmed (using a rapid test kit also available via PharmaDoctor), the Tamiflu PGD authorizes the pharmacist to dispense Tamiflu© to treat the viral infection.

The PGD also supports pharmacists to dispense Oseltamivir phosphate (Tamiflu®) prophylactically to customers under the following circumstances:

  1. As post-exposure prevention within two days of exposure to an infected individual; and
  2. For the prevention of influenza during a community outbreak for up to 6 weeks.

Note: The PharmaDoctor Tamiflu PGD is nearly always purchased by pharmacists as part of PharmaDoctor's Flu Test 'n Treat© and Seasonal Health Clinic PGD Packages.


Adverse events should be reported. Reporting forms and information can be found at www.mhra.gov.uk/yellowcard. Adverse events should also be reported to the relevant pharmaceutical company.
