Our practice nurse with special training in asthma and COPD assists the doctors in the management of patients with this condition. To make an appointment for this clinic please telephone between 10:00 and 15:00.

Children are offered health checks, vaccinations and immunisations. We recommend full immunisation for all pre-school children.

Diabetes Clinic

Our practice nurse with special training in diabetes assists the doctors in the management of patients with this condition. To make an appointment for this clinic please telephone between 10:00 and 15:00.

Smear Clinics

We employ two nurses with special training to run these clinics. To make an appointment for this clinic telephone between 10:00 and 15:00.

Travel Clinic

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 them that you are planning to visit to determine what vaccinations are required.

It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible – at least 8 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 vaccine 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.

Please visit our Travel Room for more information.

This service is not available to non-registered patients.
