Schools opting out of HPV vaccination programme and subsequent procedure

The request was successful.

Dear Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust,

I am looking for some information under the Freedom of Information Act, and Greenwich PCT recommended that I should contact you. (Ref: http://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/sc...).

Under the Freedom of Information Act, would you be so kind as to answer the below questions. Any responses should cover the time period from the initiation of the national HPV vaccination scheme to present. I am specifically looking for information regarding the geographical area covered by Greenwich PCT.

1) Do all girls aged 12 -13 get offered the HPV vaccine at school?
2) a) for girls accepting, do their GPs get notified of their vaccination?
b) for girls offered but not accepting the vaccine, do their GPs get notified of their non-vaccination?

3)a) Have any schools in the area refused to allow either clinicians or school nurses to administer the HPV vaccine? b) If so, which?
c) If the answer to 3a) is yes, what are the reasons provided for this?
d) What is the policy/process for alternative arrangements for any schools that have opted out?
e) Please provide a copy of the official notifications, or record of that notification

4a) Have any schools in the area opted out of the HPV vaccine catch up programme at any point?
4b) If the answer to 4a) is yes, which?

Yours faithfully,

Michelle
