This locally commissioned service (LCS) supports general practices in Islington by funding improved take-up of the following immunisations and screening programmes:
- flu immunisations
- pneumococcal immunisations
- MMR immunisations for five-year-olds
- DTaP/IPV immunisations for five-year-olds
- cervical screening.
It is designed to align closely to existing national programmes of immunisation and screening by offering additional incentives to practices in increasing take-up.
This LCS makes no prescriptions about method for increasing uptake, leaving this for practice discretion. The CCG, through groups such as the Immunisations Group will undertake to support best practice in this area.
