Vaccinations - Local/PCN Delivery

This site documents the requirements for GPIT Solutions to support vaccination campaigns at Local/PCN level.

The requirements are structured into 3 Capabilities which represent the business need at the highest level:

  1. Cohort Identification

  2. PCN Appointments Management - Vaccinations

  3. Vaccination and Adverse Reaction Recording

There are also a set of Overarching Standards.

To be assessed as meeting a Capability, the Supplier Solution would need to meet the MUST requirements for that Capability as a minimum. For MAY requirements, the Supplier can choose which they believe they need to meet based on their own User Research and the specific context they expect their Solutions to be used in.

A Supplier Solution does not need to meet all 3 Capabilities, as it is possible for a mixture of Solutions to be integrated within a Local/GP/PCN setting in order to meet all Capabilities.

In the interests of transparency we felt it important to be clear that although the system requirements are in a state that we believe captures the current needs to support the PCNs in being able to deliver COVID Vaccinations, we are aware that further user research and consultation with the profession continues.

It is likely that changes will be required as more is understood and we would be grateful for your support in responding to this.
