Immunisation

It is very important that all children and babies are immu­nised. Illnesses such as diphtheria, tetanus, polio and meningitis are thankfully rare because of recent immuni­sation policies, but if contracted can be crippling or even fatal. Whooping cough (pertussis) causes a very distress­ing illness with severe prolonged coughing and can lead to lung or brain damage. The risk of immunisation, if in­deed there is any, is minute and has been overstated in the past. We do strongly recommend that all babies have their immunisations. If you have any queries or worries about any aspect of your child’s immunisation, please feel free to talk them over with the Doctor or the Practice Nurse

Holiday Vaccinations

People going abroad or taking holidays need to protect themselves from various contagious diseases prevailing in the particular countries. For information or details please book an appointment with the Nurse or the Doctor.

Non-NHS Medical Services

The Doctor will carry out a variety of non-NHS Services, for example medical examinations for HGV licence, taxi driver’s licence, fitness to undertake sport, insurance reports, etc. A fee will be charged for these services and details of charges are available at Reception. Where appropriate, please tell the receptionist which type of service you require when you book an appointment. This will enable the receptionist to allocate appropriate time for your appointment.
