To help you run your best staff flu vaccination campaign yet, flu fighter has released seven new case studies covering each area of best practice. Each case study covers two or three examples from different NHS organisations.

  1. Communication – innovative examples of engagement with staff using different communication techniques from University College London Hospitals and Kent Community Healthcare NHS Trust.
  2. Mythbusting – examples from South Warwickshire NHS Foundation Trust and Bradford District Care Trust that show how you can dispel some of the myths around the flu vaccine.
  3. Accessibility - London Ambulance Service NHS Trust and Norfolk Community Healthcare Trust share their good practice and demonstrate that accessibility is key to staff having the flu vaccination.
  4. Reward - South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and County Durham and Darlington NHS Foundation Trust used small rewards to say thank you to their staff who had the flu vaccine. 
  5. Peer Vaccination - South Western Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust, Aneurin Bevan University Health Board and South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust all have great examples of how peer vaccinators have helped their flu campaign and the challenges they faced.
  6. All Hands On Deck –Liverpool Community Health NHS Trust and Royal United Hospital Bath NHS Trust tell us how they engaged their senior leadership in the flu fighter campaign. Getting management and board-level participation can give your flu campaign credibility and priority.
  7. Balanced Flu Team – Both Liverpool Community Health NHS Trust and Birmingham Children’s Hospital NHS Trust included a wide variety of staff across all departments in planning and running their campaigns. This enabled them to delegate tasks and have representatives in each department encouraging staff to get on board with their flu campaign.
