Flu jabs plan wins backing.
The minister says a rise in the number of nurses, the building of new hospitals and walk-in centres will all help improve the programme.
"We are modernising the NHS to provide fast and convenient treatment and care when people fall ill, but we also recognise we have to do more to help prevent people falling ill in the first place.
"Winter sees the highest flu rates and local hospitals came under pressure last year. Many people in north Warwick-shire and Bedworth were victims of the flu virus, which is why we are investing time and money to ease the pressure.
"With the extra money announced in the budget, the time for modernisation of the health service is now."
