15 Health Protection concerns on transition Ability to get health professional support for outbreak at very short notice: Big bang Simultaneous multiple small bangs – more difficult

16 Examples: Outbreak of Hepatitis A in a school – Friday evening - immunisation clinic required Post exposure prophylaxis for HIV in school playground following needle stick injuries. Cluster of invasive group A Streptococcus in care home at weekend requiring prophylactic antibiotics. Look backs – hepatitis/ HIV in healthcare settings Recall Immunisation of children where wrong vaccines administered

17 Strategic challenges in transition Contracts over control of infection in subcontracted services e.g. renal dialysis where outbreak occurs Control of infection in community Lack of clarity ‘where the buck stops’ e.g. immunisation Localism – challenges to national programmes on immunisation e.g. Varicella vaccine Maintaining cluster working on immunisation TB, health care associated infection, occupational health
