2013/14 enhanced services guidance and audit requirements - update

NHS Employers, NHS England and the Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC) have updated its guidance and audit requirements for the 2013/14 enhanced services and the vaccination programmes supported by automated extractions. This guidance is intended to support area teams and practices in delivering these services, and includes the new read codes and business rules, including for childhood influenza. Note that guidelines and a template for all the flu vaccines (including childhood nasal spray) are available for Vision practices.

The guidance is available on the GP contract pages on the BMA website in the enhanced services section. The business rules have also been published on the HSCIC website:  http://www.pcc-cic.org.uk/article/phase-2-enhanced-services-business-rules
