Management information: These data have not undergone any quality checking nor has analysis of their coverage been made.
For the first time, the Childhood Seasonal Influenza Programme and Seasonal Influenza Programme will be published monthly. The most recent data is for March 2021 and was downloaded from CQRS on 21 April 2021.
For the Primary Care Network Extraction, data for quarters 1 and 2 have been published together but this data will be published on a quarterly basis going forward. The most recent data is for quarter 4 20/21 (January - March 2021).
Note: There were known issues with the quarter 1 data within the Primary Care Network Extraction therefore data from the following practices have been removed from the publication: C83032, C83045, C83064, D83007, D83039, D83041, D83043, D83044, D83050, D83058, D83079, L83076.
Note: There was a slight delay to the publication of the quarter 4 Primary Care Network Extraction data due to issues with downloading the data from CQRS; the data were sent manually via spreadsheet and required increased processing and checking. We apologise for any inconvenience.
