Winter flu vaccination programme best practices

In 2020, the UK Government launched an expanded flu vaccination programme for delivery during the 2020/21 flu season. This expanded programme included the introduction of new cohorts eligible for NHS flu vaccination and increased uptake ambitions in existing cohorts.

Creating integrated care systems

In line with the triple aim of better health, better care, and better value, systems need to provide holistic person-centred care. They need to empower people to remain independent and well for as long as possible and, when they need care, ensure it is easy to access and well-coordinated across every care setting.
