Childhood Immunisations

If your child is due an immunisation, you should be sent a reminder from the practice. For children at secondary school this will come from the school. Please book an appointment with the practice nurse for immunisations or follow the instructions given by your child's school. Immunisations prevent serious diseases. For more information on the immunisations and the diseases they prevent visit:
