In 2016/17, SEMPHN will commission services to improve immunisation rates in the catchment.
Improving childhood immunisation rates, particularly within identified low rate areas or ‘hotspots’ or ‘at risk’ groups, is a key priority of SEMPHN. An increase in immunisation rates will work towards improving the overall health and wellbeing of children within our community.
Through its commissioning process, SEMPHN will contract a lead organisation(s) to support immunisation providers within these identified ‘hotspot’ areas by providing a range of effective interventions to address possible barriers to childhood vaccinations.
This may include provider-based interventions (e.g. educational webinars for GP Practice staff) or system-orientated interventions (e.g. home visits, engagement with schools). This approach has been guided by consultation with key stakeholders, evidence, and population data.
Commissioning opportunities to deliver childhood immunisation support services were released late 2016.
You can register your interest in immunisation funding opportunities. You will receive updates about the tender process including guidelines and timelines, as they become available.
