Pharmacy flu scheme 'leaves GPs with £4m loss'


Has anyone else noticed that a significant proportion of the 'flu jabs given to patients by pharmacists were given to patients who weren't in any risk group? So, have I got it wrong, or were pharmacists paid to vaccinate patients in respect of whom GPs would *not* have been paid? If not, then how would pharmacists have known who was entitled to receive an NHS-funded vaccination?
