Dear Head Teacher/ Immunisation Link,

 

Regarding the roll out of electronic consent for the upcoming nasal flu campaign 2021

School based immunisations are currently in the process of developing an E-Consent option, this is after years of the service relying on paper consent forms which we are aware has added a great deal of additional work for your school staff, we therefore hope this is a welcomed development.

 

The E-Consent will also be supported with paper consent for families who have limited access to digital resources to ensure equitability.

 

Regarding the roll out of electronic consent for the upcoming nasal flu campaign 2021. Could we kindly ask if you would send the link below link to parents/carers either via email or mobile before the summer holidays?

 

https://forms.merseycare.nhs.uk/flu-vaccination

 

We will email a hard copy to schools in September with both the covering letter and consent form for any parents/carers who are unable to complete electronically.

 

Electroninc consent will also reduce paper consent forms being mislaid and the additional stress that this causes for staff, parents/carers and pupils; it is also a step towards bringing the service in line with both the NHS digital and 5 year plan.

 

This will be a new way of working for us all and we hope we will not encounter too many obstacles along the way but we will endeavour to work closely together with you to resolve them as quickly as possible with minimal disruption.

 

As always thank you for your continued support in protecting our young people against vaccine preventable diseases and we welcome any feedback you may have.

 

Yours sincerely,

Liverpool Immunisation Team
