Baby Immunisation Clinic
Baby immunisations commence at 8 weeks old and follow a programme of immunisations as recommended by the National guidelines. You will be sent an invitation when your baby is due their first immunisations.
Dressing clinics are available for patients who may require a longer appointment or specialist treatment regarding their dressings.
Our treatment room nurses offer a range of services such as smaller dressings, ear syringing and injections.
Foreign Travel Clinic
Here we offer the necessary vaccinations and advice for your safe travel abroad. We ask that before your appointment you fill in a form at reception so that we can assess your needs. Alternatively you can fill in a form online.
You should ideally allow approximately 2 months before travel for all immunisations to be given. If there are less than 6 weeks to your date of departure please let the staff at reception know so that we can check we are able to complete all the necessary vaccinations. If you are visiting many destinations please give details of how long you will be staying in each country.
Please ensure that your travel form is handed back to the surgery 6 weeks before general travel but 8 weeks before complicated itineraries e.g. backpacking/multiple destinations or the surgery may not be able to offer you an appointment. In this case you may need to go to a private Travel Clinic.
