Clinics We Offer

Adult Immunisation

A booster tetanus injection and Polio are needed every 10 years if you are visiting a part of the world where the risk is high. We also offer a flu vaccination for those over the age of 65 and also to those who suffer from asthma, heart problems and diabetes. Pneumonia vaccines are also available for those patients at risk.  There is a charge for some holiday vaccinations.

Childhood Immunisation

All children are entitled to vaccines free of charge against certain  preventable diseases. Children are eligible with a valid PPS number. Vaccination is not compulsory but is strongly advised by the Department of health. Please discuss any concerns you might have with one of the doctors before making a decision about your child's immunisation.

Our nurse runs our baby vaccine programme. Your baby should be 2,4,6,12 and 13 months before the respective vaccines can be given. Vaccines cannot be given ahead of schedule.

If your baby is unwell at the time they are due their next vaccine please consult your doctor before making the vaccination appointment.

Cervical screening videos for people with learning disabilities

To encourage people with learning disabilities to come forward for cervical screening, two new videos are being promoted this week to dispel myths and provide reassurance, as part of Learning Disability Week and Cervical Screening Week.

The videos have been produced on behalf of the Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland (LLR) Learning Disability and Autism (LDA) Collaborative. The first is a myth-busting video which features people with learning disabilities in conversation with a local GP.  The second video shares an experience of a cervical screening appointment, which illustrates what happens and aims to help with the anxiety that people may have.

NHS England have highly praised the videos which are now being shared widely and are suitable for everyone. The videos are available on YouTube via the following links:
