New CEG childhood imms call/recall tool

As part of CEG’s programme to improve childhood immunisation rates in London and following the launch of the CEG in-practice call/recall tool in January, CEG have taken user feedback on board and are preparing to launch version 2 in North East London.   

As well as improving uptake of all routine pre-school immunisations, the updated tool will help primary care protect more children against polio – with one click, a practice can list all their patients under 6 years old who are not fully protected. 

They have made the updated tool available via their website and will contact each practice by email with a link to the request form and an offer of 1:1 support from facilitators.  

What’s changed? 

APL-Imms Version 2 includes new features that were suggested by its users: 

-              Filters to view newly registered children or those with previous declines; 

-              One-click button to export for Accurx, to send appointment messages with ease; 

-              Patient telephone numbers visible within the tool.  

Here’s more detail on what’s changed (opens PDF via the CEG website).   

Version 2 is only compatible with EMIS. CEG are still working on a SystmOne version of the tool and expect to launch it later in 2022.
