Letters, calls and emails: An investigation into infant immunisation

Dear Editor

I am conducting an investigation about infant immunisation in the capital on behalf of the London Assembly.

The Assembly’s Health Committee first investigated infant immunisation in 2002, and published a report of its findings in January 2003. Since that report was published, the capital’s immunisation rates have continued to remain lower than the rest of the country, and in some cases continued to fall.

My follow-up investigation hopes to find out why, with a view to finding out how levels across London can be increased.

I would like to hear GPs’ views about infant immunisation:

Have you vaccinated your children? If not, why not?

Is there enough advice and information about immunisation?

What do you think could be done to improve immunisation rates?

Please send your response to: Sarah Hurcombe, Secretariat Directorate, Post Point 10, City Hall, The Queen’s Walk, London, SE1 2AA, or by email to sarah.hurcombe@london. gov.uk by 4 April.
