Travel Vaccinations and holiday advice

Anyone planning holidays abroad should refer to the Fit for travel website and then check with the practice nurse at least 2-3 months before they are due to travel as to which vaccinations are required. Some vaccinations are not available on the NHS and therefore a fee will be charged.

Influenza Vaccinations

The influenza vaccine programme will normally start in September. Information will be posted in the surgery,  on this site and using the practice Facebook page when dates are confirmed. This vaccination is recommended for those over 65 and anyone suffering from a chronic disease such as diabetes or heart disease.

The pneumonia vaccine is administered  by the practice nursing team to the same group of patients as above but only needs to be given once during your lifetime.

Chronic Disease Management

The care of these patients is shared between the Doctor and Nursing Team. You will be called for an annual review to keep you in the best of health.

We strongly advise you to quit smoking, it can lead to many health problems including cancer, heart disease, lung disease and strokes. Local resources  are available to help you stop smoking.

The NHS has lots of resources to help patients lose weight and get active  and in some cases have services that you can be referred to .  If you are concerned about your weight and further help please book an appointment with on of the practice nurses.

Self referral to first contact Physio service
