Childrens Vaccinations

Childhood vaccinations and immunisations are carried out by the health visitors, with  an appointment on Mondays between 1.30pm – 4pm.

Please contact the surgery if you have not received a scheduled appointment for your child so arrangements can be made for this to be done. 

The health visitors can give you a great deal of practical help and advice. You may telephone them direct on 663608. If they are unavailable to speak to you directly, you can leave a message.
