GPs to be paid £1.50 for each child invited under MMR catch-up campaign


We have just received a letter from NHS Englnad that, certainly locally here in Teesside, catch-up immunisations for children aged 5-16yr are being done by school nurses until mid June. So, we are therefore left with the intransigent and reluctant individuals/families. Secondly, £1.50 per invite is no incentive to a busy practice. The DoH should save us the bother and write to the patients themselves, putting their own stamp on the letter!
