Description: To re-procure the National Pandemic Flu Service to ensure that a complementary service to primary care remains ready to be mobilised to enable the rapid distribution of antivirals to symptomatic individuals in the event of a pandemic.
DCA (RAG): Amber/Red
DCA text: Phase 1 involves the replacement of the existing online service with a new system developed internally and the replacements of the existing telephony infrastructure. Work to replace the telephony service is progressing well and it is expected that sufficient capacity to support a pandemic response will be available at the transition point of 1st December Technical development of the replacement system is making good progress with promising early iterations and strong performance in initial volumentric tests. . An initial mock assessment of the service against the GDS service assessment criteria has identified a number of areas for improvement which are now planned to be incorporated within future development. Substantial discussions around the appropriate long term hosting platform requirements are taking place and a future procurement of the long term host is planned through the GCloud framework: it is likely that this will not be ready untill early 2016, and the service will plan on the basis of deployment on the interim hosting platform (which is currently being used for dev and test) should there be a pandemic in December 2015 or Q1 2016. Phase 2 involves the replacement of the associated back office systems that management collection points and stock management. Plans for Phase 2 are less well developed, and are expected to be formalised during Q4 FY15/16 for delivery in FY16/17.
