Clinics and Services

We offer the following services:

Child Immunisations

These are given at age 2, 3, 4 and 12 months with boosters at age 3 years and 4 months (or soon after). They immunise against Diphtheria, Tetanus, Polio, HIB, Whooping Cough, Meningitis C, Mumps, Measles, Rubella, Pneumococcal Disease, Meningitis B and Hepatitis B.

Cervical Smears

These are offered routinely every 3 years between the ages of 25 and 50 years, then every 5 years thereafter as necessary.

Mammograms (Breast Screening)

These are offered at the age of 50 and then every 3 years until 70 years.

New Patients

All new patients are invited to attend for a health check with a practice nurse.

Travel Vaccinations

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements.  This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.

It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible  – at least 6 weeks before you travel – as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations.  These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine.  Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.

If the above applies to you, please complete our Travel Risk Assessment form.

Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge.  This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
