As we’re all aware, this year, health workers are facing the nightmare scenario of dealing with both flu and Coronavirus at the same time.

The government’s response has been to launch “the most comprehensive flu programme in UK history”.

It announced that it would offer flu vaccinations to 30 million people this winter.

The expanded programme will be available to:

  • people aged between 50 and 64;
  • households of those who are shielding, and;
  • children in their first year of secondary school.
    What’s less clear is how such a large programme will actually be delivered on the ground.

There are many unanswered questions, which could create a number of unforeseen compliance challenges.

In this episode, Tracy Green, Head of Primary Care at QCS will be discussing some of these compliance challenges with QCS’s GP Policy Lead Alison Lowerson.
