All of these immunisations are available at the well baby clinic or by appointment with the practice nurses. We have plenty of appointments throughout the week, even at weekends! Please call reception to book

We will not be able to give your child their immunisations if they are unwell with a high temperature. If you child has a runny nose but no fever they may still be able to have their immunisations. Please discuss any worries that you may have with the doctor or nurse.

We are still giving childhood immunisations during the Covid-19 Pandemic. We have measures in place to keep our surgery a safe place to visit. It is vital that your child stays up to date with their immunisations. Please call reception to book.

Flu vaccination Clinics

Each year we are able to offer flu vaccination to patients who are at increased risk of flu

We have plenty of appointments available with our Nurses and Healthcare Assistants - please book!

Housebound patients who are eligible for a flu jab will be offered one via the District Nursing Team

We start giving Flu vaccinations around the end of September until the end of the flu season in February. The earlier you have the Flu vaccination, the more protection you will have over winter. Call reception to book your appointment!
