Clinics & Services
It is our aim that all children should be fully immunised according to national guidelines against tetanus, diphtheria, whooping cough, polio, Hib, mumps, measles and rubella. Appointments are automatically sent out for our clinics which are held every Monday PM by our practice nursing team. If you have any questions regarding your child's immunisation please direct them to one of our reception team.
