Message from Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust:
School based immunisations are currently in the process of developing an E-Consent option. The E-Consent will also be supported with paper consent for families who have limited access to digital resources to ensure equitability.
E- Consent is environmentally friendly and will provide greater reassurance with regards to infection control measures whilst in this pandemic; it is also a step towards bringing the service in line with both the NHS digital and 5 year plan.
