We strongly recommend that all children are immunised in accordance with the UK Childhood Immunisation programme, which includes immunisation against diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis (whooping cough), poliomyelitis, haemophilus influenzae B (HiB), meningitis C, pneumococcus, measles, mumps and rubella.
Your health visitor or practice nurse will advise you when your child’s next immunisation is due, and you can also find details in your child’s personal health record (red book).
The National HPV Vaccination programme started in September 2008, and aims to vaccinate girls aged 12-17 against the Human Papillomavirus (HPV) types 16 and 18, which are responsible for about 70% of cervical cancer cases.
We recognise that women outside the age range for the National HPV Vaccination programme may wish to be vaccinated, and therefore offer a private service for this, led by Dr Gillian Ostrowski. Please contact reception and leave a telephone message for Dr Ostrowski to return your call if you are interested in having the vaccine.
We offer adults a number of vaccinations as detailed below:
- Hepatitis A vaccination
- Hepatitis B vaccination
- Influenza vaccination
- MMR (measles, mumps, rubella)
All appointments for immunisation should be made with a practice nurse. To make an appointment with a nurse, please complete our Request an Appointment with a Nurse or Healthcare Assistant form.
