NHS England would just like to clarify the arrangements that are in place whereby flu vaccinations can be provided by pharmacies for patients in care homes as part of the national flu vaccination advanced service.
The request for the service must come from the care home. This is covered in point 4.4 of the service specification:
Access to the Summary Care Record (SCR) has been deployed for Community Pharmacies since the beginning of 2016.
Many pharmacies in the area are currently accessing the SCR to:
· enhance clinical decision-making and benefit patients
· improve efficiency within stores and the wider healthcare community
· deliver enhanced commissioned services
