Buttercups Training Celebrates 30 years

buttercups-houseSince 1988, the Buttercups Training family have worked in Vanessa’s houses, attics and offices around South Nottinghamshire. From a small team solely providing workshops to pharmacy staff, to a team of over 140 delivering over 25 online and paper courses across all pharmacy sectors, Buttercups has certainly filled that gap in the market. More recently, since October 2017, the training team now work under one roof in a brand new, city centre HQ, Buttercups House.

Despite the transition across the years, Buttercups’ mission has always remained the same; to deliver high quality training programmes to pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, dispensing assistants and support staff working in hospitals, the community, dispensing doctors' practices and the Armed Forces.

We are the largest training provider in the pharmacy sector serving pharmacies from the largest multiples to independents, dispensing doctors and NHS Trusts.

We are launching a management course for pharmacy professionals, maximising use of the available government funding on our quest to continually upskill the world of pharmacy.


To help our learners, employed in the healthcare sector, achieve their potential, and make a rewarding contribution to the health and wellbeing of their local communities and the success of their employers.

Our mission is to create a world where being born with CF no longer means a life-long struggle, when everyone living with the condition will be able to look forward to a long, healthy life.

Pharmacist Support is the profession’s independent charity which supports pharmacy students, pre-registration trainees, pharmacists, retired pharmacists and their dependents.

The charity provides a broad range of services including financial support, careers advice, a ‘listening friend’ service and wellbeing workshops.
