    I contacted to my GP surgery they did not offer her flu vaccination as she does not eligible  because she is not fall in risk group. although she has diagnosed as:


    I again contacted to Children Consultant ( Community Paediatrics), she gave us letter and communicated to GP surgery that our  daughter need flu jab due to her health issue but GP surgery did not offer flu vaccination.

    I raised this concern to NHS England ,they contacted to GP surgery and send us letter that our daughter did not qualify  for flu jab as not diagnosed as asthma even though she is using asthmatic inhaler on regular basis.

    I am looking for help from members and parents of autistic children how that GP surgery did not consider the letter Consultant / community paediatrics as their duty of care for disable person to look after their health.

    Kind regards.
