HPV Vaccination Programme

HPV completing dose (booster) vaccination programme.

Purpose and outline

This service is routinely provided by school vaccination services. It is recognised that some students may miss the schools programme and present to their GP practice to request vaccination. As part of the 2018/2019 GP contract negotiations, it was agreed that where practices provide this service to their patients it can be reimbursed.

This is only to be provided on request from the patient and if the patient has missed the schools provision. It is not expected that this should be an alternative provision to the service commissioned to deliver through schools, and practices will not proactively offer the vaccination to patients.

We do not expect a high number of claims.

Where GP practices have been commissioned as part of local arrangements, they should agree with their area team the reporting and payment arrangements. They should not use this service.

Where a programme is CQRS/manual only, practices are required to use the clinical codes as provided in the Technical Requirements document on the NHS Employers website. Business rules will not be provided, so practices should decide the best mechanism for reporting the figures, either by developing their own templates or by working with their system supplier to create a template.

How this service is commissioned and provided

This service is provided as part of the GMS/PMS contract provision.
