GPs decline hospital requests to give adults HIB vaccine

Comment

I I think this is the group of patients with severe bronchiectasis with very frequent lower respiratory tract infections. Clearly a non licensed prophylaxis . In fact , I would want to check the serology of Haemophilus first if the test is available . But it is also correct consultants should not enforce this on GPs. Specialist carries the responsibility of counselling the patient on an unlicensed treatment and hence logically provide that themselves.
