Dear East Sussex Downs and Weald Primary Care Trust (PCT),

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.

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?

If the answer to 1) is not a complete yes:

3)a) Have any schools in the area refused to allow clinicians 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,
