Flu Campaign Overview
Welcome to the Flu Campaign page. Here we will give you a step-by-step guide of sending out a Flu Campaign message, as well as general and advance prep information.
Before you start
iPLATO operate a number of regional flu reminder services across CCGs and STPs, so before you set up and run your local Flu Campaign, do check with your CCG in case they are using our centralised messaging service, myGP Engagement Hub.
To request information about myGP Engagement Hub, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

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:
- Step 1: Create a Flu Campaign group
- Step 2: Create a Flu Campaign template
- Step 3: Create a Flu Campaign trigger word
- Step 4: Send out your Flu Campaign
We have launched a new feature in the myGP app that allows patients to display a barcode of their NHS number within the app.
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.
