Hepatitis B - vaccination should be obtained by those at risk of infection due to travel, employment or lifestyle.
Hepatitis A - vaccination should be obtained by those who frequently travel abroad visiting areas where there is a higher risk of contracting hepatitis (if in doubt please contact one of our practice nurses).
'Flu - vaccinations are provided during the autumn/winter for ‘at risk’ patients eg those who have heart or respiratory disease, asthma, diabetes and/or aged 65 years or over. Please enquire at reception if you have some other condition that you feel may place you in the ‘at risk’ category.
Pneumonia - a once only vaccination for protection against some forms of pneumonia. Recommended for those patients listed under ‘Flu’ above.
Meningitis - a programme of immunisation for young adults against the Meningococcal ACWY strain. Details from reception.
Vasectomies are carried out in our operating suite by trained and LHB accredited Partners.
Patients considering a vasectomy should make an appointment with a doctor or nurse practitioner of your choice.

This procedure is also available privately to non-patients or through the NHS when referred by your doctor.
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment to discuss your travel arrangements over the telephone with the practice nurse. 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.
Travelling in Europe
If you are travelling to Europe the EU has published useful information for travellers on the European website.
Some services provided are not covered under our contract with the NHS and therefore attract charges. Examples include the following:
The fees charged* are based on the British Medical Association (BMA) suggested scales and our reception staff will be happy to advise you about them along with appointment availability. *Please see below.
