Adult Immunisations

Influenza

If you suffer with asthma, lung disease, heart disease, kidney disease, have had a splenectomy or you are over 65 years of age you should have an influenza vaccination every October.

Tetanus

A full course (three injections) for those previously un-immunised and two further boosters ten years apart is considered sufficient protection.

Polio

A full course for those previously un-immunised. For those exposed to a continuing risk of infection a booster dose every ten years.

Childhood Immunisations

There are very few real contra-indications that apply to any of the childhood immunisations. If you have any doubts or anxieties, talk it over with your health visitor.

Routine Immunisation Programme

Each vaccination is given as a single injection into the muscle of the thigh or upper arm.

Private Medical Examinations

We carry out routine medical examinations for insurance companies and employers. There is a charge for such medicals which sometimes has to be paid by the patient personally. This will usually be the case for HGV and taxi driver licences and for the fitness to drive medicals required by most insurance companies for those over 70. Please ask the receptionist about charges when you book a medical. You may be asked to pay a deposit at the time of booking the medical.

Private Health Care

We are happy to refer patients who wish to see a specialist in private practice. We make a charge for the completion of claim forms for private health insurance. A full schedule of fees, updated in April each year, is available on request from reception.

Practice Nurses

We have one of our Practice Nurse team based at Haymeads Health Centre each weekday morning. They treat patients suffering with the following conditions:

Flu-like symptoms, sore throats, sinus & headaches, earache, sticky eyes, skin rashes, cystitis, thrush and vaginal discharges and contraceptive problems.

Simply arrive at Haymeads Health Centre between 8.30am - 10.00am and ask to see the nurse. Please note that booking for each day closes at 10.00am.

Routine appointments with Practice Nurses are also available at all three sites. ECGs can only be performed at Church Street and Haymeads Health Centre.
