That conference, with regard to the Covid-19 vaccination programme:

  1. applauds the efforts of GPs and their teams who are the reason why the UK programme has been successful in rapidly vaccinating our population including those who are most vulnerable
  2. believes that we need to start planning for an annual Covid-19 vaccination programme
  3. requires GPC to proactively negotiate with NHS / DHSC a Direct Enhanced Service so that if an annual Covid-19 vaccination programme is required it will be contracted with and delivered by individual general practices.
