New immunisation law – no jab no pay from 1 January 2016 plus more!

The financial incentive for your children to get an immunisation jab is on. It may improve your health and wealth. We always believe in empowering patients to have freedom of choice through education. This is a personal family decision that you should discuss with your GP.

If your child does not undergo a Health Check, your family tax payment benefit could be affected.

It is now law that families can lose their family benefit payments from the Government if their children are not immunised. Practices should remind patients by email, websites, newsletters, waiting room signage and by phone when making appointments. In addition to this, a number of other new important initiatives have come into effect in the New Year. See the article below for more information that could affect your lifestyle:
