Service Overview

IntraHealth have delivered immunisation services since 2009 and we have successfully scaled up our delivery from a cohort of 18,000 children to 180,000 in 2016/17. We have exceeded the uptake targets with good performance outcomes for our commissioners.

Our immunisation programmes are delivered in schools which provides:

  • Easier access for children in not needing to take time out of school
  • Reducing inequalities for children living in rural areas
  • Less reliance on parents in organising GP appointments, arranging travel for children to attend GP appointment and potentially taking time off work themselves.

Our experienced team have developed systems and processes to ensure that our service is accessible to all eligible children. A dedicated phone support line (0333 358 3397) manned between 0830–1730, Monday to Friday, with an answerphone service outside of these times and email address is publicised for children, parents/carers, schools, GPs or other health professionals to contact the service about the procedure or vaccination.
