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


Ref: Anonymous 9:12 - Any patient not in a risk group is not eligible for vaccination as paid for by the NHS; these must be paid for by the patient, therefore this assertion, whilst it may be true that the majority of those vaccinated by pharmacists are not in a risk group (I am not in a position to verify your comments) is a red herring as it does not "divert NHS funds" or "line pockets at NHS expense" - this is a private transaction between the pharmacy & the patient
