In a bid to avoid vaccines expiring later in 2014, Public health chiefs have told GPs they must vaccinate children aged between 2-4 years within a three-month window this winter. Delays to the immunisation programme will mean vaccines expire midway through the flu season which runs from August 2014.
Experts from Public Health England (PHE) said in guidance for this year’s flu immunisation programme that it was ‘highly likely’ central stocks of the chosen Fluenz vaccines will have expired by the end of January 2015. Part of the Giving all children a healthy start in life policy, child vaccinations are part of the aim to give children the best possible care from an early age.

Quality and outcomes framework indicators for managing multiple long-term conditions could be added to the 2016/17 GMS contract.

Some CCGs have assigned funding conditions to the new target, which include reducing admission rates and potentially increasing at home care interventions. Transforming care for the elderly can equate to an extra £50 for patients aged 75 and over. CCGs are also assigning conditions to the release of funding which will be based around conditions such as COPD, Diabetes and Atrial Fibrilation. [Read More]
