The practice nurse holds an immunisation clinic on Tuesday between 2pm and 3.45pm. The doctors at this practice fully support the giving of MMR vaccines and strongly advise that all children are immunised in accordance with local and national guidelines.
An appointment will be sent to you for your baby's six week check, which will be carried out by one of the doctors here in the surgery.
If you have a heart or lung problem, asthma, diabetes, a carer, or are in ill health, you are advised to have a flu injection every year. Clinics are held in October/November when vaccine becomes available.
Our practice nurses are able to advise on all health matters for foreign travel. Please ask for a travel form at least two months before your planned journey. Rabies and Japenese Encephalitis vaccination is not available under the NHS and a charge must therefore be made.
