Leicestershire, Lincolnshire & Northamptonshire Screening and Immunisation Team (SIT)

Since 1 April 2013, national screening and immunisation programmes have been the responsibility of Screening and Immunisation Teams (SITs) comprised of Public Health England (PHE) and NHS England employed professionals.

Formerly the Leicestershire and Lincolnshire SIT, from 1 April 2016 we became the Leicestershire, Lincolnshire and Northamptonshire SIT. We commission and co-ordinate screening and immunisation programmes across Leicester City, Leicestershire, Rutland, Lincolnshire and Northamptonshire.

These webpages are primarily directed at health care professionals delivering the services that we commission. If you are a member of the public seeking information about NHS screening or immunisation programmes please go to the NHS website or speak to your GP, practice nurse or other health care professional.

Our main aim is to use this website to make information more easily accessible to primary care professionals who provide immunisation services, and to publish locally produced materials (eg PGDs) in support of this. Comprehensive information about the national screening programmes is available on Public Health England’s website, so we have chosen not to reproduce this here.

Most information that you require about immunisation, including the Green Book and Vaccine Update, can be found on Public Health England’s website.

If you have any queries or wish to contact the team please email us england.emids-imms@nhs.net.

Staff working in other areas should contact their local SIT. Details of NHS England offices can be found by following the link to the regional team pages using the Contact us tab above.

This organogram is overdue a revision. All former PHE staff are now employed by NHS England and NHS Improvement. Whilst the majority of staff listed continue to work in the LLN SIT, some do not and individual responsibilities for those that still do may have changed.  An updated version will be shared in due course but please note that neither Chloe Leggat or Lesley McFarlane are now available to provide clinical advice.

All clinical enquiries and incident reports should be sent to the generic email address listed above – SIT staff are rostered in turn to cover this during office hours (providing resilience and allowing them time for other duties) and all queries and incidents are now logged with a reference number that will be shared with the enquirer/ reporter.

However, if you have an Covid-19 vaccination enquiry or incident please send this to england.midscovid19vacs.pmo2@nhs.net marked ‘for the attention of CARS’ which is the dedicated response service for this programme.
