Quality statements

Statement 1 Providers use a range of different methods to invite people in eligible groups for flu vaccination.

Statement 2 People in eligible groups receive invitations for flu vaccination that include information about their situation or clinical risk.

Statement 3 Non-general practice providers notify the relevant GP practice when they vaccinate their eligible patients.

Statement 4 Health and social care staff who have direct contact with people using services receive flu vaccination from their employer.

NICE has developed guidance and a quality standard on patient experience in adult NHS services (see the NICE Pathway on patient experience in adult NHS services), which should be considered alongside these quality statements.

Other quality standards that should be considered when commissioning or providing flu vaccination services include the NICE quality standard for vaccine uptake in under 19s.

A full list of NICE quality standards is available from the quality standards topic library.
