On 1 April 2020, NHS South East London Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) was established. The new CCG is made up of the previous six south east London CCGs in Bexley, Bromley, Greenwich, Lambeth, Lewisham and Southwark. Information that has been held previously by those six CCGs transferred to the new CCG on 1 April 2020. The new CCG will become the new controller for the data held by the superseded organisations. If you have any further questions about the use of data by NHS SEL CCG, please contact nelcsu.information-governance@nhs.net.

Choose to be healthy this winter. Protect yourself, your friends and family with a flu jab today.

Certain groups are at particular risk from flu and vaccination is the best protection we have against an unpredictable virus. That's why the flu vaccine is free for people who really need it. If you (or someone you care for) fall into one of the following groups, contact your GP practice or local pharmacy for a free flu vaccine:

  • adults age 65 and over
  • children age 2-3 and in reception classes through to year 5 (delivered as a nasal spray)
  • pregnant women
  • anyone with an underlying condition such as COPD, bronchitis, asthma, emphysema, diabetes, heart disease, kidney disease, spleen problems (like sickle cell), liver disease or a chronic neurological disease like multiple sclerosis or cerebral palsy
  • anyone with a weakened immune system as the result of conditions such as HIV and AIDS, or medication such as steroid tablets or chemotherapy
  • anyone who receives a carer's allowance, or you are the main carer for an elderly or disabled person whose welfare may be at risk if you fall ill
  • frontline health and social care workers
  • anyone who has a learning disability and are on their GP learning disability register.
