Finding time to attend training has traditionally been difficult for GPs, whose schedule can vary from day to day. In response to this, UNICEF UK has developed this online training package to provide GPs with all the information they require to support mothers. It covers how breastfeeding works, how to treat common breast conditions (e.g. mastitis, thrush) and prescribing drugs for breastfeeding mothers.

The course takes approximately 25 minutes to complete and can be accessed many times, either at home or at the practice. Once the course is completed, GPs can print off a certificate for their CPPE / CPD portfolio.

Prices start at £10 for a single login, with packages available if more than 25 GPs from the same area need training.

Access for 25-50 GPs : £400

Access for 51-100 GPs: £700

If you wish to purchase access for more than 100 GPs, please contact the Baby Friendly Initiative office to ask for a bespoke quote.

Please note: The e-learning package is built using Adobe Flash software and will not work on systems, such as Apple Macs, that do not support this.
