Certain vaccinations are routinely offered to everyone in the UK for free on the NHS depending on their age or circumstances.

MMR vaccination is routinely given to children as part of the NHS childhood immunisation programme. It can also be given to older children and adults and babies over six months of age that need to be protected against measles, mumps and rubella and/or in the event of a measles outbreak.
Measles can cause very serious illness, and spreads very easily. The MMR vaccine has been shown across the world to be a safe and effective way of preventing measles. It can protect your child and others against measles infection and its serious consequences.

The purpose of the Shingles vaccination programme is to reduce the incidence and severity of shingles disease in older people. Shingles is caused by the same virus that causes chickenpox. Shingles is a common disease that can cause long-lasting, severe pain. It can cause permanent disability, and it occurs more frequently in those over 70 years old, who are also more likely to have worse symptoms.
All eligible patients will receive letters to book an appointment, if they would like to be vaccinated.

If you are planning to travel outside of the UK, don't forget to book in to see the Practice Nurse for immunisations and practical travel advice at least 8 weeks before you go!
Just follow these easy steps:
- Fill out a Pre-Travel Risk Assessment Form by clicking HERE. You can also collect a form from Reception.
Please be as specific about your destination as possible. For example, 'Ko Samui, Thailand' instead of just 'Thailand'.
- Once you have completed and returned the form, book a 20 minute travel consultation appointment with the Practice Nurse. Please be aware that the appointment must be at least 2 weeks after you have handed the questionnaire in. This will give the Nurse time to review the form, and order in any vaccinations as required.
- Attend your travel consultation for immunisations (if required), and practical advice on keeping well while you are away.
