LMCs Buying Group and Flu Vaccines Practices will have received the latest letter from NHSE  the buying group have been speaking to the four companies that they have discounts with on a regular basis since the NHSE letter of the 22 December and once the new advice is circulated on Monday 5th Feb they will be talking to the vaccine companies again, after which they will issue guidance

They have already negotiated an extension of Seqirus’ ‘early bird’ discount on Fluad. Originally this was meant to end on 31 December but has now been extended to 16 February for LMCs buying group membership.

'General Practice Speed-Dating Event 15th  March 2018 Taunton Racecourse from 7 PM We are arranging an informal evening for GP trainees to meet a range of Somerset practices in one space for the chance to talk face to face with a potential new employer, further details and invitations will be distributed next week

Top Tip  for Practices who receive NHS Health Checks electronically – The way these are currently read coded for BMI and BP needs to be reviewed and practices may need to re-enter the data.

1. BMI value comes through as free text which means the patients notes are coded as having a BMI but it does not put them on the Obesity register if appropriate as the value is a text and non-numerical. The BMI needs to be recalculated using the BMI Calculate button within emis.

2. BP comes through as two separate codes for diastolic and systolic not as the O/E BP code 246 which means the graphs for BP will not include these figures.

Kind Regards

Jill
