Most innovative mythbusting winner announced

Flu - no natural immunity

04 / 2 / 2016 Midnight

Throughout January, trusts submitted their entries for the flu fighter monthly reward scheme for the most innovative mythbusting used in local flu campaigns.

We are proud to announce NHS Blood and Transplant as the winners for the final reward scheme of the 2015/16 season. 

NHS Blood and Transplant
This special health authority supplies blood to hospitals in England and North Wales, as well as solid organs across the UK. The trust has been crowned as the winners for its work in surveying their frontline staff to identify circulating flu myths. The team then used this information to create screensavers and staff case studies to emphasise that the flu is more than just a bad cold. 

This was the last reward scheme of this season. Flu teams in England and Wales can now share successes of their campaigns by applying to the 2016 flu fighter awards, for a chance to gain national recognition and celebrate their hard work.
