It has now been confirmed that the administration of the 2023/24 flu vaccine by practice staff to frontline patient-facing staff working in general practice will be eligible for cover under CNSGP.
The Enhanced Service (ES) Specification – Seasonal influenza vaccination programme 2023/24 has been updated to enable practices to offer their frontline patient-facing staff working in general practice a flu vaccination, effective from 1 September 2023. This covers frontline patient-facing staff who are either registered with the GP practice or not registered with the GP practice (therefore including peer to peer vaccinations), and who elect to receive their vaccination from the GP practice.
As the service is offered and provided under the terms of the seasonal influenza vaccination enhanced service specification and therefore under a primary medical services contract (GMS, PMS, APMS or Schedule 2L provisions under an NHS Standard Contract) the activity falls within the scope of the Clinical Negligence Scheme for General Practice (CNSGP).
