Cumbria and North East (NHS England) PGDs

Following discussions with the Assistant Medical Director and Responsible Officer and the Screening and Immunisation Manager, NHS England Cumbria and North East-Sub Region, it has been agreed that the new PGDs produced nationally by Public Health England will now be authorised by NHS England Cumbria and North East, for use by practices and NHS services within the Durham, Darlington, Tees, North Cumbria, Northumberland and Tyne & Wear areas.

These PGDs have been produced to support the national immunisation programme and will gradually replace all previous versions as they reach their review dates.
