PCV Hib / Men C vaccination programme

Background

Your Regional Local Offices (RLO) have the option of using CQRS to manage this service or to continue to use local process. If your RLO decides to administer the service via CQRS, your practice will receive an offer message through CQRS.

Purpose and outline

This vaccine boosts protection against Hib disease and protects against meningococcal disease caused by type C Neisseria meningitidis bacteria. It is given at 12-13 months in the UK schedule. The Hib/MenC vaccine was introduced in 2006 as a result of studies which showed that protection against Hib provided by the 5-in-1 vaccine given in the first year waned during the second year of life. It is a combination vaccine, which reduces the number of injections a child needs.

This childhood vaccination programme commissioned from GP practices. Currently there is no standard payment tool to support this programme and therefore has previously required local solutions which puts additional workload burdens on both the GP practice and NHS england local teams.

By creating a manual payment portal on CQRS we provide a single national solution that will reduce the burden and deliver a solution which links to the national payment solutions.
