GPs advised to order next year's flu vaccine before NHS finalises programme


Potentially a catastrophe in the making. What happens if NHSE suddenly decides that a difference vaccine is needed -- and refuses to reimburse the one that's actually been ordered? It strikes me that this is the NHS at its disorganised best: with, of course, the GPs as the fall guys, stuck in the middle. May I point out to those in NHSE that 'leadership' means 'deciding firmly what to do, and supporting the troops up to the hilt while they do it' (and also taking the flak/cost/reputational hit if it all goes wrong).
