Clinics & Services
Clinics provided by surgery staff and available to book through the reception team:
Routine Childhood Vaccination
Pre-bookable clinics available on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
These vaccinations are very important; we have recently seen an increase in the confirmed cases of Measles and Mumps.
Children need 2 doses of Measles, Mumps and Rubella vaccine to be protected. These are given aged 1 year and 3 years 4 months.
Please check your child is up to date with the UK schedule.
Any questions relating to childhood vaccinations please contact the nursing team
