Three quarters of the workforce in every NHS trust will have to be vaccinated against flu this year or miss out on the £250 million pledged by the Government to fight the disease.
- This extends to the wider workforce outside of clinicians - managers, porters and other hospital workers will have to be immunised.
- New data shows just 8% of staff at Britain's worst performing hospitals had been given the flu vaccine, compared with 80% at the best.
- The average was 45% - a level described by Dame Sally Davies, the UK's chief medical officer, as really not good enough.
