Dear All,

Happy New Year!

I hope that you have not been too inundated with coughs and colds and not yet succumbed to the same!

I have attached a few documents that may be helpful for use in practice when seeing patients and also an update on the flu vaccines for 2018.


‘Treating your Infection’ focuses on encouraging self-care for patients/parents and carers. It has been produced and supported by a range of professional organisations including the RCN, RCGP & The Royal Pharmaceutical Society.

The second leaflet has been produced by ‘Healthier Together’ (Dorset, Hampshire & The Isle of Wight) and is a useful resource for us as professionals. It provides guidance on the management of common childhood illnesses and presentations, including advice on how long they should be off school or nursery.

Non-medical prescribing

The other attachment is for any prescribers or those currently considering or undertaking a prescribing course. This has been written to support non-medical prescribers, providing guidance and evidence for appraisal and revalidation.


We have had a number of queries in the last few weeks around what flu vaccines should be ordered and given in 2018. Nigel Watson our CEO recently sent an email which you may had already seen which clarifies which vaccine is more effective in each age group. I understand the Green Book will be updated in due course.

In Summary

If I can be of help in any way please email me.

Kind regards
