NHS to pay GPs extra £10 per vaccination delivered to housebound patients

The extra £10-per-visit funding is to recognise the extra staff time and complexity of vaccinating housebound people, NHS England said.

The additional funding is retrospective and will apply to any vaccinations that have already been delivered to those who cannot leave their homes.
