NICE Guidance - August 2018

The National Institute of Health and Care Excellence (NICE) have published new or updated guidance for the month of August 2018. This month there are two guidelines that impact upon primary care.

The Flu vaccination: Increasing uptake guideline has been published. It covers how to increase uptake of the free flu vaccination among people who are eligible. It describes ways to increase awareness and how to use all opportunities in primary and secondary care to identify people who should be encouraged to have the vaccination.

The Community pharmacies: promoting health and wellbeing guideline has been published. It covers how community pharmacies can help maintain and improve people’s physical and mental health and wellbeing, including people with a long-term condition. It aims to encourage more people to use community pharmacies by integrating them within existing health and care pathways and ensuring they offer standard services and a consistent approach. It may be relevant for people working in related services, for example GP practices and out-of-hours services.

Action: Clinicians should be aware of this month's new guidance and implement any necessary changes to practice.
