We run annual flu clinics for the elderly and at risk groups. Travel immunisations can be organised by completing a travel health questionnaire and arranging an appointment after speaking to the practice nurse. Please note not all travel vaccinations are available on the NHS and that many vaccinations require several weeks to take full effect. You may be asked to attend a private Travel Clinic if you have left it too late to arrange an appointment for the practice nurse to organise treatment required.
