I recently reported my concerns on my GP not being given the immunisation information on my child since 2005. A meeting was held on 22nd February by various health bodies, discussing the concerns raised by myself.
The outcome of this meeting was that all child immunisation information backdated from 2011 to present day is now going to be sent over to GPs.  All the October 2015 flu immunisation information will also be sent in this way. There will now be a weekly coded electronic record being sent across from the Liverpool Community Health to all GPs, to keep their patient records fully updated. I believe this has already begun.
Liverpool Community Health (LCH) and the NHS Liverpool Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) are working together to ensure good practice continues in this area.
NB. I am informed that the CCGs concerned are South Sefton CCG and Southport and Formby CCG in this instance.
Southport ots news LCH will contact the CCG in order to discuss the management of historical data from 2011 onwards.

A representative from the NHS said that I had identified gaps in the recording of data.

As a parent I am very pleased with this outcome and believe there is now a more robust system in place, not to mention the dealing of backdated information to ensure the safe recording for patients.

The statement below is from the Liverpool Community Health NHS Trust, who I would like to thank for their cooperation in this matter.

“All immunisation history is recorded, held safely and accurately by Liverpool Community Health NHS Trust (LCH) and that if parents require access to this that are very welcome to contact the Child Health Information Service on 0151 295 3575  to request this information.

It is best practice that this information  is also  documented at the GP  practice. LCH have established improved systems of undertaking this and a weekly report will be going electronically to GP practices to inform them of this information.

LCH will discuss with the CCG and Sefton practices regarding the management of  historical data in order to ensure that GP practices are in possession of all immunisation information since the establishment of LCH as an organisation in 2011. “
