Child Immunisation Clinics
Thursday 09:00 – 11:00
These are run for all children in the practice in conjunction with the practice nurse and health visitor.
These are available via the practice nurse. Please ring surgery for an appointment. We suggest cervical smears are done every three years from the age of 25 to 49 and every five years from the age of 50 to 65. If you feel your appointment is overdue, please check with the practice nurse.
Patients Aged Between 16 and 75
If you have not been seen in the last three years, it is recommended that you are seen by the practice nurse for a health check.
Patients over The Age Of 75
We recommend that patients over 75 are seen every year for a check-up.
Advice and holiday vaccinations are available from the practice nurse.
Routine advice on contraception is available from the surgery. Make an appointment with either the doctor or practice nurse.
Emergency contraception is available to help prevent unwanted pregnancy. Tablets can be taken up to 72 hours after unprotected sex. If you need emergency contraception please tell the receptionist you need to be seen as an extra emergency appointment. If she requests to know the reason why, please ask to speak to her in private. Emergency contraception works better when taken as soon as possible after unprotected sex.
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.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
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.
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.
Travel Health Questionnaire
To help us offer the appropriate advice, please fill out the online form before coming to see the nurse.

Some services provided are not covered under our contract with the NHS and therefore attract charges. Examples include the following:
