Liverpool Community Health NHS Trust wins national 'flu fighter' award

LIVERPOOL Community Health NHS Trust was among 6 winners at the annual national NHS flu fighter awards.  The panel of judges, including the editor of Nursing Times magazine Jenni Middleton, said that the team's remarkable efforts will be promoted across the Country to inspire similar work.  The awards are part of the NHS flu fighter campaign run by NHS Employers, which has helped increase the number of frontline NHS staff having flu vaccinations by 182,000 since it began in 2011.  The Liverpool team won in the 'Innovative flu fighter campaign' category against stiff competition from throughout England and Wales.

Judges noted that the Liverpool team's 'ImmuniseYourSelfie' digital campaign really got people talking about the flu vaccination. Staff from across the Trust posed for 'selfies' and highlighted their reasons for getting the jab. The trust's Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts were fully utilised to increase awareness with daily planned updates, including flu facts and public health themed posts coinciding with seasonal events such as Movember and Halloween. Over 90 #fluselfie entries were generated, as well as over 400 staff mentions of #ImmuniseYourSelfie on Twitter, over 500 retweets and over 300 Facebook posts, assisting the trust in achieving over 65% uptake of flu vaccinations.

Danny Mortimer, chief executive of NHS Employers, presented the award and said:- "This team has done fantastic work to help make the NHS an even safer place for staff, patients, and anyone they come into contact with. More than a million people use the NHS every 36 hours and many can be very vulnerable to flu. So it's great that the majority of NHS staff find time in their busy days to seek out these voluntary vaccinations."

There have been year on year increases in NHS staff flu vaccinations since flu fighter launched nationally in 2011. At the end of the last winter 541,000 (54.9%) of frontline NHS staff were choosing to be vaccinated, compared with 359,000 (34.7%) in 2010/11; the winter before the national campaign began.

The vaccinations are not mandatory, but help to protect staff, their friends, family and patients from flu. flu fighter provides information and resources to help the NHS promote vaccinations locally and make them more convenient to have.
