Abstract Background
Needs assessments undertaken in Southwark identified coverage for several vaccines especially MMR, Shingles, influenza and HPV had fallen below targets, risking disease-outbreaks and highlighting need for strategic action.
Recognising complex commissioning arrangements for immunisation -programmes, a partnership-approach, with local and regional London stakeholders was adopted by Southwark Public Health in developing a 2-year Immunisation Strategy and Action Plan. This lays down our vision for Southwark to improve coverage of vaccinations across the lifecourse, protect health and reduce inequalities. Our ambition is to achieve 5% increase in coverage for each immunisation programme by 2021.
5 priority areas for action were identified through comprehensive literature-reviews and stakeholder-engagement, within which evidence-based-actions were nested: (1)Underserved groups: less likely to access immunisations, such as traveling communities, looked-after or home-schooled children targeted through both mapping-exercises and tailored-interventions such as a proposed council-based initiative to access immunisations (2) Community engagement: targeted campaigning with community groups to provide information, dispel myths and engage ‘vaccine hesitant' groups (3)Data sharing and quality improvement: working with providers to improve timely, accurate data-flow through developing best-practice guidance and removing data-sharing barriers (4)Service delivery, call/recall: developing a systematic multi-component call/recall system through sharing learning from high-coverage practices and schools and maximising opportunities arising from changing primary-care landscapes (5)Training and development: supporting staff directly/indirectly involved in delivering immunisations in making-every-contact-count and accessing high-quality immunisation training/updatesConclusion: Southwark's 2-year Immunisation Strategy aims to rectify declining immunisation coverage trends by 2021 and improve population health through a strategic, partnership-approach underpinned by evidence-based actions.
