There have been some recent communications from NHS England/Improvement who want to increase uptake of the COVID-19 Spring Booster vaccination, specifically in patients who are immunosuppressed. PRIMIS’ involvement in the COVID-19 vaccination programme is limited to production of the national data specification and not development of accompanying searches.
GP System Suppliers (EMIS, TPP, Cegedim/Vision) have already developed recall searches including those patients eligible for the Spring Booster, however, please note that these existing searches also include patients aged 75+ and those in long term residential care (as per the green book eligibility criteria). NHS England/Improvement are asking practices to target the immunosuppressed group.
As a goodwill gesture, PRIMIS have developed some searches in TPP and EMIS, using a best endeavours approach, in order to meet this immediate and urgent demand. If you would like to access these, please complete this form and we will be in touch shortly.
Please note that CHART is not required to run the system searches.
