Update on the BCG vaccination service in Barking & Dagenham, Havering, Redbridge, and Waltham Forest.

From 1 September 2024, Vaccination UK, who are a provider of immunisations for the NHS, will be giving BCG Vaccinations in Barking & Dagenham, Havering, Redbridge and Waltham Forest. This means that NELFT (North East London NHS Foundation Trust) will no longer give BCG vaccinations after 31 August 2024. 

If your child is eligible for the vaccine and has not received it by 1 September 2024 or you have declined the vaccination or not responded to us and have been discharged.

Please be aware NELFT will send your child’s details to Vaccination UK as part of their continuation of care. 

We will send your child’s first name, surname, NHS number, date of birth, address, and telephone number. 

NEFLT will send your information securely and following the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) principles. 

If you do not want NEFLT to send your child’s details, please let us know by phoning 0300 300 1694 or emailing  paediatricbcgimmunisations@nelft.nhs.uk before 10 August 2024. If you do not call or email, we will send your child’s details to Vaccination UK.  

If you have any questions, please call 0300 300 1694 or email  paediatricbcgimmunisations@nelft.nhs.uk and a team member will be happy to talk to you.
