Important changes to the Bradford City & Bradford District Pharmacy First Service.
From 1st January 2017 adults (18yrs+) will not be eligible for the Pharmacy First Service. Both Bradford City & District CCGs have made the decision that for patients registered with GP Practices in Bradford City & Districts CCGs, provision of Pharmacy First scheme for adults (18yrs +) will cease on 31st December 2016. After this date you will no longer be able to claim Pharmacy First provisions to adults.
Provision for children (under 18yrs) can continue until at least 31st March 2017. The CCG is reviewing whether they intend to commission Pharmacy First for children after this date and will keep you updated accordingly.
All "fresher" students going to university for the first time , including overseas and mature students up to the age of 25, are strongly advised to have a vaccination to prevent Meningitis W.
The Men ACWY vaccine is given by a single injection into the upper arm and protects against four different causes of meningitis and septicaemia – meningococcal (Men) A, C, W and Y diseases
We will be holding vaccination sessions here at Bradford Student Health Service for newly registered students.
