Travel Clinic

A travel clinic is held on Thursday by nurse Sue Barnes for advice on malaria prevention and travel vaccinations. Some vaccinations need to be given well in advance of travelling, so please check your requirements as early as possible by contacting us 6-8 weeks before your departure. You can also check what vaccinations you need by visiting www.travelhealthpro.org.uk.

Some vaccinations and prescriptions are not available under the NHS and charges will apply. Please ask reception for our current price list (PDF). All fees are payable at the time of consultation either with cash or cheque; most debit and credit cards are accepted.

Due to the time necessary for each appointment it is only possible for us to offer travel advice and vaccinations during our travel clinic. If we are unable to offer you an appointment in the appropriate time for your trip please contact a private travel clinic (search the web under “travel clinics”).

Local clinics include:

Vaccination Clinics

Flu vaccination clinics are usually held in October and November each year. Vaccination is recommended for all patients over 65 and those with problems relating to heart, liver, kidneys or lungs (including asthma); diabetics, strokes, a weakened immune system and those patients who are carers. If you are in one of the at-risk groups as detailed then please contact reception early October to make an appointment if you haven’t received your written invitation by then.

We also offer vaccination against pneumococcal infection to patients in the at risk categories. This vaccine is available throughout the year, please make an appointment with our practice nurse.

Our doctors and nurses do not provide an occupational health service as part of their NHS responsibility. If you need a Hepatitis B injection as part of your employment then we advise you to liaise with your employer who will be able to make the necessary arrangements with an occupational health provider.

Child Development and Immunisation Clinics

Please register your baby with your own GP as soon as possible to receive GP advice or an appointment. On Thursday mornings, Dr Fozard runs a baby clinic to check your child’s development at the age of 8 weeks. Our practice nurse also runs a childhood immunisation clinic at the same time. It is very important that your child receives all of their immunisations. Please ask the health visitor or your doctor if you need further information or visit www.nhs.uk.
