Interim Guidance on Erroneous Transfer

This interim guidance has been developed by the GP2GP project and the Joint GP IT Committee to advise practices how to reduce the risk of making an erroneous record transfer request and advising practices and PCTs how to manage such erroneous requests when they do occur.

Pandemic Flu – vaccination programme

Letters regarding the H1N1 vaccination programme have been sent out from the Department of Health advising practices to continue vaccinating at risk groups opportunistically beyond the end of March. For this they will continue to receive payment, though not the related DES concessions. Practices will be advised to stop vaccinating children under 5 from the end of March. The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation has suggested that the vaccine can now be offered as a travel vaccine for those travelling to Southern Hemisphere countries during their flu season. This is likely to be provided through private travel health providers. The letters are available here.
