Clinics & Services
We run annual flu clinics starting in September for those patients who are in our at risk groups.
This includes the following patients:
- Any patient over the age of 65
- Pregnant women
- Children and adults with an underlying health condition (particularly long-term heart or respiratory disease)
- Children and adults with weakened immune systems
If you are eligible for a flu jab on the NHS* we would ask you please to ensure that you have your jab done here at the surgery. This is because we hold your full medical record and the doctor or nurse will be aware of any contra-indications. Appointments will be available with the nurses throughout the day and we may be able to jab you on demand if we have a clinician available to carry out the jab. GPs will also be offering jabs opportunistically.
In order for the surgery to be able to offer this service to all its eligible patients, we need to ensure that we achieve the NHS target for flu vaccination to allow us to continue to offer flu vaccines to our patients at this surgery in the future. Please support us by booking for your flu jab here.
*those patients who are eligible will receive a letter of invitation from the surgery
As well as travel vaccinations, we offer the full range of immunisations for children and adults including tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis, Hib, polio, MMR, rubella and meningitis as well as travel vaccinations (see below). Babies' first immunisations will be given by the nurse at the same time as your visit to the doctor for your baby's eight week check. For all other childhood immunisations please make an appointment with the health visitor.

Minor Eye Problems
If you have a recent problem with your eyes - such as sore eyes, red eyes or visual disturbance you can be assessed and treated by our local Minor Eye Conditions Service. See leaflet below.
Minor Eye Problems
We hold cryotherapy sessions for the treatment of minor skin lesions such as warts, verrucas, skin tags and sun damage. This involves freezing the abnormal skin with liquid nitrogen. Healing normally takes place between 1 and 3 weeks, but can often take longer on the lower legs. When the treated area has healed, the skin usually returns to a normal colour, but this can take several months. Uneven skin colouration or permanent pigment loss rarely occurs. Please see any GP for review of your skin lesion and referral to the cryotherapy clinic.
Minor surgery may or may not require a local anaesthetic. If given the effect will last for about an hour. One of the following procedures may be performed and will generally take 15-20 minutes.
- Skin Biopsy
- Removal of Lesions by Excision
