In order to send out a Flu Campaign, you will need to prepare a few simple things in advance:

Step-by-Step Guide

Below is guide of how to create and send a Flu Campaign using myGP Connect. Each page covers the steps in a detailed text guide with screenshots, in addition to a Video Tutorial:

Barcode

Call/Recall

If you have activated the myGP app and would prefer to send your Flu invite as a Call/Recall Campaign, follow the below link to find our step-by-step guide. This will give patients the option of booking their appointment directly from the seasonal flu invitation they have been sent. You can also run multiple campaigns using this feature at the same time. This will reduce the number of incoming calls into your practice and will also reduce the number of patients you need to contact to book their vaccination.
