Abstract IntroductionA Public Health Plan is being developed for Sandwell and West Birmingham NHS Trust. One recommendation from the Plan is to give an influenza vaccination to eligible groups within a hospital setting. In 2015/16, Sandwell's influenza vaccination coverage was 67%, and Birmingham's coverage was 69.2%. A novel data linkage was proposed to support the plan.AimTo explore the vaccination status of patients ≥65 years of age, registered in SWB CCG, and who attended SWBNHST during the 2016/17 flu season.MethodPatient population and vaccination status extracted from primary care systems.Admitted Patient Care database interrogated for patients 65 years and over, registered to SWBCCG (Sept 2016-Feb 2017).Linkage request considered by NHS Digital and through formal approval route at Data Services for Commissioners Regional Offices (DSCRO). DSCRO linked primary and secondary care data, and pseudonymised data in accordance with data governance procedures.Results67,614 patients in SWBCCG ≥65 years were identified: 72% had received a flu vaccination and 36.28% had not.11,303 emergency admissions to any hospital, of which 4,398 (39%) had received flu vaccination and 6,905 (61%) had not (Unadjusted RR of being admitted to hospital in vaccinated vs. unvaccinated population 0.36 (CI: 0.33 to 0.39).7,761 patients attending SWBNHST for any reason were unvaccinated.234 emergency admissions with respiratory specialty code. Up to 8 respiratory admissions could be prevented for every 1000 additional influenza vaccinations given. ConclusionA large cohort has been identified who may benefit from an influenza vaccination within the hospital setting.
