The phlebotomist's clinic is currently held on Wednesday and Friday morning.
This is provided by the community midwife who holds antenatal clinics at the surgery. These clinics are held on a Thursday and alternative Friday mornings. If you think you are pregnant please make an appointment with the midwife for a first booking appointment. The midwife sees patients from the 8th week of pregnancy.
Clinics are held in the health centre on a Tuesday and Thursday afternoon. Your child will be sent an invite when they are due for immunisation. It is important that you arrive for your appointment on the date and time on your invite. If for any reason you cannot attend on that day contact the team by telephoning the number on the invite letter. Please also remember to bring your child’s 'red book'.
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below:
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
