For information on children's vaccination schedule click here.
Flu is a highly infectious illness that can spread rapidly from person to person. Because it is a virus, antibiotics cannot treat it and it can lead to complications in vulnerable individuals. Therefore, it is very important to protect yourself against flu by simply having the vaccination.
You will soon be asked to ring reception to book your appointment if you have any of the following, or you usually have the vaccination.
Children aged 2 & 3 are offered a nasal flu vaccine as part of a UK wide comprehensive vaccination programme.
This is not an exhaustive list - patients may receive vaccination at their GP's discretion.
Please call our receptionists on 01889 562010 to book your flu vaccination.
There may also be the opportunity for you to have the Shingles Vaccination if eligible.
The purpose of the Shingles vaccination programme is to reduce the incidence and severity of shingles disease in older people. Shingles is caused by the same virus that causes chickenpox.
Shingles is a common disease that can cause long-lasting, severe pain. It can cause permanent disability, and it occurs more frequently in those over 70 years old, who are also more likely to have worse symptoms.
You only have to have the shingles vaccination once. Click here to see if your age makes you eligible for the shingles vaccination.

These clinics are run on Mondays and Fridays, we will send immunisation appointments by post. The health visitors clinic is held in the community clinic at Balance Street Health Centre.

We offer advice and vaccinations for travel. Please ask at reception for a travel health questionnaire and once completed you will be contacted by our practice nurse to discuss your requirements. The cost of some travel vaccinations do have to be borne by the patient.
We offer a minor injuries service. Injuries will be assessed by a doctor or practice nurse and if appropriate, treated at the surgery. More complex injuries will be referred to the accident and emergency department of a local hospital.
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to complete a Travel Health Questionnaire. 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 submit the Travel Health Questionnaire to us as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel.
Some vaccines used for travel purposes are supplied by the NHS for public health reasons. These are administered free of charge to patients.
Other travel vaccines have to be ordered on a private basis and incur a charge to the patient as they are not provided by the NHS. These vaccines usually have to be ordered in as they are not stock items.
