To ask the Scottish Government whether it will provide an update on how vaccination programmes will be delivered in remote and rural areas under the new GP contract.
Answered by: Aileen Campbell 28 March 2018
I refer the member to the answer to question S5W-12475 on 21 November 2017. Vaccination is one of the services currently provided by GPs which will be reconfigured under the terms of the Memorandum of Understanding between Scottish Government, British Medical Association, Integration Authorities and NHS Boards. Integration Authorities will develop local Primary Care Improvement Plans in conjunction with NHS Boards, developing local solutions to delivering vaccination programmes that best suit them, their patients and their geography. The Vaccination Transformation Programme will phase the transition of the vaccination programmes over the next three years.
