Childhood immunisation clinics are held at Vernon Street on a Tuesday afternoon and at the Lanes throughout the week. Parents or Guardians will receive letters from the surgery advising them when their child’s injections are due.
Every year from October to November the surgery runs flu vaccination clinics. Those patients over the age of 65 and also patients under 65 in certain health risk groups will receive a letter from the surgeries advising them of the dates of the clinics. Patients should then follow the advice in the letter about booking an appointment. Patients who are housebound will be visited by a nurse professional and vaccinated in their home.
The Midwife is in surgery at Vernon Street every Monday from 09:20 to 15:00 and Wednesday from 09:30 to 14:30 and at Normanton Lane on a Thursday between 12:30 and 16:15
