6 week baby checks are carried out by the doctors. Additionally, the health visitors arrange regular paediatric checks and run baby and under ones clinics. Appointments will be sent to parents for scheduled checks.

Child Immunisations

Children's vaccinations are carried out by the Practice Nurse. Immunisation is essential for protection against potentially debilitating, or even fatal, diseases. You will be sent a reminder card in accordance with the immunisation schedule (see page 15). If you have any worries or concerns about your child receiving vaccinations, our doctors and health visitors are available for advice.


Pneumococcal Immunisation

In most cases, this is a once only vaccination recommended for older patients and certain at-risk groups. We are participating in the Department of Health's immunisation programme and patients who fall into these categories will be invited to receive the vaccine.

Travel Immunisations and Vaccines

Please make an appointment with the Practice Nurse at least 8 weeks in advance of your travel date. A charge will be made for certain immunisations which are not covered by the NHS. A list of these charges is available from our Receptionists. (temporarily suspended due to COVID-19) 

Home Blood Pressure Monitoring

The Practice runs a home blood pressure monitoring service for those patients whose blood pressure requires short term or regular monitoring. Patients are referred to this service by their doctor and will receive a letter inviting them to arrange to borrow one of the surgery BP machines. The readings can be recorded on our home monitoring form and returned to the Practice with the monitor. (temporarily suspended due to COVID-19)
