NHS England's Area Teams are already free to commission provision of immunisation services as they see fit in accordance with relevant legislation, to ensure that immunisation services are safe, effective, and of high quality. For example, NHS England commissions community pharmacies as supplementary providers of seasonal influenza immunisation.
