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.
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. Please note you will be invited by the screening programme and we can not take a smear without this invitation.
You can book an appointment with our Practice 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).
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.

Most young people will talk to parents about health and illness, but for some teenage issues like feeling depressed, contraception or bullying, they may decide to go and talk to a doctor or nurse in confidence. Sometimes this happens because it is just too embarrassing to talk to parents about sensitive and personal matters.
All children, even those under 16, can make an appointment to see their doctor or nurse without their parents’ knowledge or consent. The doctor or nurse will keep this appointment confidential as long as they are satisfied that the young person understands what is going on. There may be occasions, such as sexual or drug abuse, where the doctor is unable to keep information confidential, but they will always discuss this first and act in the best interests of the young person.
The HELP Spot is a drop-in service, available to all young people within the Sandhurst area and is staffed by a GP, Family Planning nurse, School nurse and Youth Worker. It is based in a dedicated room at The Spot – the youth centre adjacent to Sandhurst School. It is open each Wednesday afternoon from 3.30 to 4.30 pm for confidential help and advice on issues important to young people, ranging from acne and bullying to sexual health and contraception

Travel vaccinations are only free of charge if there is a possibility of bringing a disease in to the country which could be deemed to be detrimental to public health. Currently, the only vaccinations for travel which are free are:
These can still be administered by the Practice Nurse. Currently there is a nationwide shortage of Hep A so these vaccines are temporarily unavailable or of limited stock.
If, for your travel destination, you only need either/or Typhoid, Tetanus or Hep A (when available) then you can make a 10 minute appointment with one of our Nurses please bring along evidence that you have already received Health advice.
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with a travel specialist. You can visit a private travel clinic or some large Pharmacies to discuss your travel arrangements. We recommend you do this at least six weeks in advance of your travel date. This will include all countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations and advice are required. You can also look up the government on-line website who will recommend vaccinations and offer advise about any country you plan to visit.
In addition you may also find the leaflets below a useful reference.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
