Immunisation target payments

A few practices have contacted the Lincolnshire LMC regarding a drop in monies received for payments for immunisation targets. This is due to the removal from the Statement of Financial Entitlements (SFE) of the payment for one dose of MenC vaccination at age three months, in 2016/17.

In 2016/17 SFE the requirement to deliver MenC vaccinations as part of the childhood vaccination programme was amended. The dose delivered at three months was removed from 1 July 2016. The funding remained in the SFE for two years to recognise the two year payment lag for the targeted programme. This has now be removed from the SFE.
