Childhood Immunisations

We believe that all children should have the benefit of full immunisation against potentially harmful infections. Our Practice Nurses run an Immunisation Clinic on a Wednesday morning between 10.00am and 11.45am.   If you have any concerns about having your child immunised then please discuss these with the Nurse or your own Doctor. We do encourage you to have your child immunised against diseases for which immunisation is possible, including measles.
