NHS trusts wants doctors and nurses to have flu jabs to stop epidemic spreading

LONDON Jan 9: NHS trusts are failing to get doctors and nurses to have flu jabs despite fears of a flu epidemic spreading to Britain from France.
Figures have revealed that as few as one in three workers have been vaccinated at some hospitals.
This is despite Professor Sir Bruce Keogh, the NHS' medical director, last year warning that healthcare professionals had a 'duty' to get the flu jab to protect their patients and colleagues. 
It also comes as the NHS braces itself for a flu epidemic following a surge in cases at hospitals and GP surgeries.
