Health Protection Scotland (HPS) has introduced three additional reports for their 2013 - 14 Immunisation Programme. The new reports extract information about patient conditions and diagnoses related to Flu, Shingles and Rotavirus. These three additional reports are triggered by your existing Swine Flu schedule, which runs once a day through your practice eLinks communications system. You do not have to do anything in order for these reports to run and be sent.
This patch release initially delivers and installs the HPS Additional Immunisation Reports 2013-14 to all Scottish practices who have the CentraStage software deployment tool installed on their system (hosted practices automatically have this tool). There is no user intervention needed.
For practices with their own server who do not have CentraStage installed and for hosted practices where CentraStage is not working, please contact your Health Board who can install the reports for you.
Note – To ensure all practices receive this update, HPS Additional Immunisation Reports 2013-14 will also be included in DLM 460.

Instructions for Health Boards
To install the reports simply replace the "Flu queries – Scotland GQL.txt" and “SwineFluExtract.exe" files in O:\Program\ with replacement files in this zip file. You do not need exclusive access to Vision to do this however if the SwineFluExtract.exe is running, you will have to wait until this is finished to replace the files.
