FLU IMMUNISATIONS

The Children's annual flu nasal spray is offered free to children aged 2,3 or 4 on 31st August 2016 - (that is, children born between 1st September 2011 and 31st August 2014) to protect them against flu.

Flu can be a very unpleasant illness for children with potentially serious complications, including bronchitis and pneumonia.

The nasal spray flu vaccine has very few side effects - the main one is getting a runny nose for a few days after vaccination.

For children registered at the Practice please call the appointment line to book.

BOOKING APPOINTMENTS

PLEASE NOTE THAT IT IS NOT POSSIBLE TO BOOK AN APPOINTMENT BEFORE 8am

Please let us know if you need to cancel your appointment

On just one day this week 5 patients failed to turn up for appointments they had booked with our Practice Nurses. This is a frequent occurrence. You will appreciate that this is a serious waste of their time.  If you have an appointment booked with either a nurse or a doctor and you cannot attend please let us know so that this appointment can be offered to someone else. Thank you.

Travel Vaccinations

global air travel

We offer a tailored travel health service including a full range of vaccinations and advice on malaria prophylaxis.

We are a designated yellow fever centre

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. You will be seen by a nurse who has experience and training in travel medicine and immunisation, and who has access to specialist travel health online resources.

There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the Fit for Travel website and we suggest that you visit the website before your appointment.

It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible  - at least 6-8 weeks before you travel (earlier for complex intineraries or higher risk travel)- as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations and some vaccines require a course which can take 1-2 months to complete.

However, if you have a last minute trip, or have only just got round to thinking about vaccinations for your holiday IT IS NEVER TOO LATE!  Some vaccinations can be given right up to the date of departure, and most malaria tablets should be started just one to two days before arrival in the risk area.  Please book a telephone appointment with the nurse who will be able to advise you on which vaccinations you have time for.  If we are unable to offer you a last minute appointment we can refer you to a private travel clinic.

If you have children who require vaccinations we ask that you book a telephone appointment to speak with the nurse first to discuss options.  It is often less stressful for the child to be vaccinated at a separate appointment.
