Vaccination is the most effective way of protecting your child from infectious diseases.
Please book an appointment with one of our nurses for your child to have their vaccinations. All of these vaccinations are free of charge.
If you have any questions about immunisation or think your child may have missed any of their vaccinations, our nurses are very happy to provide advice.
If you are registering your child at the surgery after moving from outside the UK, please provide us with a record of the immunisations your child has already had. This helps us maintain accurate records and invite them for immunisations if needed.
For further information about childhood immunisations, please speak to one of our nurses or see the NHS website.
