- Flu And Pneumonia Injection Clinics
These are held each year, usually in September and October. These injections provide valuable protection against flu in at risk patients, such as patients with heart, lung and kidney problems, diabetics and the elderly.
The pneumonia injection is currently recommended for over 65s and younger people with certain medical conditions who are at risk.
The Department of Health states that we are not able to provide flu or pneumonia vaccination for our patients who do not fall into the above categories, but we will be able to advise you on where you will be able to obtain the vaccination.
Flu Clinic 2017
We have now finished our walk in Flu Clinics for this year. If you were unable to attend these clinics and are eligible for the vaccine, please contact reception to book an appointment with the nurse.
Cervical Screening (Smear Tests)
All women aged 25 to 64 are offered a cervical smear test as part of the national cervical screening programme every 3 years from age 25-49 and every 5 years from age 50-64. However, if you are aged 65 or over and have never had a test, you are still eligible and are welcome to book an appointment with the practice nurse.
If you cannot, or would prefer not to, visit your GP for contraceptive advice, you can book an appointment in one of our family planning clinics with the nurse. Alternatively, you can visit one of the local Pharmacies who offer private consultations, and speak with the Pharmacist, especially if you are in need of Emergency Contraception (Morning After Pill).
Services In Addition To The NHS
An appropriate fee will be charged for services carried out that are not part of the NHS. A list of fees is displayed in reception.
