Child Health Surveillance
Every 1st, 2nd and 3rd Thursday of the month clinics are held by the nurses for child immunisations. We will send you an appointment when it is time for your child’s check.
We see children when they are six weeks old for their first assessment and at regular intervals up to three and a half years old.
We are keen to make sure that our young patients are given protection against serious infectious diseases. We believe a regular routine vaccination programme is extremely safe and effective.

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below:
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - this is to ensure there is sufficient time for the travel consultation to take place and the necessary vaccinations to be given. Depending on your destination you may require more than one consultation. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
Travel Health Questionnaire
To help us offer the appropriate advice, please fill out the online form and hand to reception who will pass it on to the travel nurse. The nurse will then decide on how long an appointment you will need and a member of the reception team will then contact you to arrange this.
Travelling in Europe
If you are travelling to Europe the EU has published useful information for travellers on the European website.
Some services provided are not covered under our contract with the NHS and therefore attract charges. Examples include the following:
The fees charged are based on the British Medical Association (BMA) suggested scales and our reception staff will be happy to advise you about them along with appointment availability.
