The childhood immunisations are now given in rapid succession at two, three and four months to protect small babies. It is very important that your child has these immunisations. There are very few reasons for not giving them. If you are concerned that your child should not have an immunisation on a particular day, perhaps because the child is unwell, please contact the surgery for a telephone consultation with one of the nursing team, so they can assess whether or not they should have the immunisation and discuss your concerns.
Having your child immunised will help reduce or prevent the risk of catching one of the infectious diseases. In order to keep our records up to date please remember to inform the practice team of any immunisations your child has had outside of our practice.
This is run by our practice nurses, practice pharmacist and physicians associate

In the interest of patient safety, we have been reviewing all patients on regular or repeated courses of steroid medication.
Patients taking these medicines have an increased risk of adrenal crisis, if medication is suddenly stopped. Adrenal crisis is a potentially life-threatening condition, which occurs when there is not enough of the hormone cortisol, which is produced by the adrenal glands.
If you are ever taken ill, experiencing trauma, surgery or suffer any other stressors, the NHS Steroid Emergency Card identifies to healthcare staff that you are taking steroid medication and helps provide you with the appropriate treatment.
Click here to download your new Emergency Steroid Card and display the card as your phone wallpaper background. Please carry your card with you at all times and present it in the event of a medical emergency or during an admission to hospital. For more information please click here
Please continue to take your prescribed medication as per the advice you have been given. If you have a medic alert bracelet or necklace, it is still recommended that you also carry the new NHS Steroid Emergency Card.
Please contact the surgery if you have any issues with your NHS Steroid Emergency Card.
To ensure adequate protection needed whilst travelling abroad, patients will need to book an appointment with the Practice Nurse at least two weeks prior to their holiday. We issue certificates for some vaccines i.e Hepatitis A and Typhoid, and there will be a charge for this.
There is a charge for certain immunisations and vaccinations which are not covered by the NHS. Please speak to one of our practice nurses for travel advice. We are also a yellow fever centre.
To reduce the risk of cervical cancer, smear tests should be performed regularly (unless otherwise indicated by the doctors) between the ages of 25 and 64. If you are not up to date with your smears you will be notified by post that you are due for a smear test.
