Patient group direction and national protocol for pharmacy contractors is out to support flu jabs of frontline staff


Share post:

NHS England and NHS Improvement have issued the patient group direction (PGD) and national protocol for community pharmacy contractors to support flu vaccination of the frontline primary care staff.

This follows the announcement pertaining to eligibility of frontline primary care staff for NHS flu vaccinations this season.

With the release of protocol, vaccination of these staff can now be commenced as part of the service.

Contractors have to keep a manual record of the number of primary care staff they vaccinate in the service and report the same each month on the NHS Business Services Authority’s Manage Your Service (MYS) platform.

The manual data collection is just for evaluation purposes and will not affect the claim for payment.

Besides, PSNC has published a tally chart to help contractors in keeping a manual count of the number of staff from each primary care setting they have vaccinated each month.
