Influenza Outbreak

As you have probably realised by now, the ‘Flu Season’ is now in full swing.

For those practices who are part of the ‘Disease Surveillance’ network, it is vital that we get your returns on time.

Generally speaking, the timeliness of returns have been much better this year.  This is probably down to the new search function that HealthOne initiated last year.  Also, timeliness has become critical and as a result, the ICGP now deduct a percentage of the fee if the timeliness of a practice has been lower than 90 per cent.
