70% of GPs unable to secure enough flu vaccine for over-65s

Comment

Eh? Just Your Average Joe @ 12:23? Are you a GP who runs their own practice? Money is to be made from purchasing the vaccine at discount and reimbursement via PPA at cost, plus various add on fees which make it a nice earner. Add to that the fee for giving the vaccine and then the smaller bits via QOF etc. Getting the vaccine via the CCG would make the Flu jab non viable. Besides that deal breaker, would you seriously trust the CCG and NHSE not to f@ck it up completely?
