Postnatal and baby checks are carried out 6 to 8 weeks after the birth. We will book these for you and send you a letter with your appointment details.
Baby Immunisations Clinic
On receipt of your reminder from the Child Health Service, please telephone and make an appointment in this clinic at the surgery for the immunisation of babies or pre-school boosters.
If you suffer from chronic medical conditions such as diabetes, asthma, chronic cardiovascular disease etc you will receive a letter or text message requesting that you attend a medical review with our specialist nurses. The doctors are very keen for their patients to have their reviews undertaken by specialist nurses as this can help prevent further problems from developing. We are obliged to send you a further letter if we do not receive a response from the first invitation.

Dr Robins, Dr Coombs and Dr Murray are qualified to fit coils.
Influenza, Pneumonia and Shingles Vaccination
Flu clinics run from early autumn to December each year. Vaccination against influenza is recommended annually.
If you're 65 or over, you should be offered a type of pneumonia vaccine known as the pneumococcal polysaccharide vaccine (PPV).
You're eligible for the shingles vaccine if you are aged 70 to 79. The shingles vaccine is not available on the NHS to anyone aged 80 or over because it seems to be less effective in this age group.
If you are housebound these vaccinations will be carried out by our home-visiting team.
This service is no longer available through the NHS.
Other options include DIY kits (available through pharmacies or online), and private clinics available in the local area.
