The Department’s influenza vaccine uptake monitoring team have written to colleagues in PCTs and SHAs regarding responsibilities for data collection.
Under the the Review of Central Returns licence ROCR/OR/0270/000MAND, all Trusts are responsible for the central return of data on the uptake of influenza vaccine in frontline healthcare workers during the 2011/12 influenza season. SHAs must check and validate the data provided.
Further instructions are provided for PCT commissioners in light of the ongoing reorganisation of primary care.
