Influenza medication guidance deactivated for 2019/20

The Department of Health and Social Care has issued a notification (PDF) advising that antivirals for influenza should no longer be prescribed this season.

The surveillance data from Public Health England (PHE) indicates that circulation of influenza in the community has returned to baseline levels. As such primary care clinicians should no longer prescribe antiviral medicines for the prophylaxis and treatment of influenza on an FP10 prescription form.

Action: Clinicians should be aware of this notification and cease prescribing antiviral drugs for the prevention and treatment of influenza.
