Clinics & Services

Child Development Clinics

Please follow the advice given to you by your midwife, health visitor or the Primary Care Trust when these checks are made.

Immunisations and Vaccinations – Babies and Children

Babies & Children should have their first injections (tetanus/diphtheria/ whooping cough/meningitis and polio) at two, three and four months. To make sure your child is fully protected it is important that they have all the immunisations. The triple injection (MMR) protects against measles, mumps and rubella. It should be given when the child is about 12-13 months old. The final “baby” injection should be given just before they go to school and a further booster injection is required at the age of 14 years. All girls who have not had the MMR injection by ten years of age should seek medical advice on the protection against German Measles (Rubella). BCG (for tuberculosis) is no longer given routinely to all children. If you have any concerns about this please speak to the school nurse at your child’s school or contact the surgery.

Phlebotomy/blood tests

These can be booked for Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday mornings. Appointments start from 8.30am. It is important to ring 4-5 working days after the test to check your results.

Childhood Immunisations

We accept bookings for the Nurse for appointments at times to suit you. We do not restrict clinic times for when you can come and have this done.

MMR

If your child has not had two doses of MMR vaccine they are at risk of catching measles. Measles can be very serious, leading to pneumonia and even death.  The Department of Health has recommended that all children have two doses of MMR.  Measles is one of the most infectious diseases known, and the MMR vaccine will protect your child from measles, mumps and rubella. For more information on measles and the MMR vaccine, please click here or get in touch with your health visitor, practice nurse or GP.  As an NHS provider, we recommend the MMR vaccine for your children and hope that you will bring your children to an appointment with the nurse for these vaccines.

Flu

It is important for all those over 65 to have a flu jab.  It is also important for all those people under 65 who are in an “at risk” group.  Please call and book an appointment as soon as possible

Warfarin Monitoring

Our Practice Nurses hold a warfarin clinic on Wednesday and Thursday mornings at present.  If for any reason you are unable to attend at this time, please speak to the Nurse who will arrange to see you at another time.

Patients with Diabetes, Asthma or COPD

We do not hold specific timed clinics for these conditions and expect our patients to be able to attend at that clinic time, we like to be able to offer a range of times to suit the patient’s own commitments.  You can book appointments at a time suitable to you for these very important check- ups and reviews.  Our Nurses work at a range of times over five days Monday to Friday and are available on a Thursday evening up to 7pm.
