Funding available for flu programme

NHS England has made an additional £15.4m available to local systems and primary care providers to cover reasonable additional costs (over and above the usual fee structures) associated with this year's extended flu programme.

Two sets of guidance have been published on how to claim from this funding, one for NHS regional teams and community pharmacies, and one for NHS regional teams and general practices. NHS England has also published a frequently asked questions for the flu programme to help answer some of the questions for primary care staff, along with a quick guide for GPs and community pharmacists to help check the eligibility of people seeking to receive a free flu jab this year.
