A variety of vaccinations and boosters are given from two months of age, the only reason for not getting these injections are if your child has an acute illness or has had a reaction to a previous vaccination. Please contact a member of the Health Visiting Team for further information.
A range of vaccinations are available. If in doubt please check with the Practice Nurse. Influenza vaccinations are available each Autumn for the elderly and those with medical conditions such as asthma, diabetes, heart disease or kidney disease.
It is very important for all women have a cervical smear test. This is carried out 3 yearly from age 25 and 5 yearly fromage 50 to 64. Women on non routine screening will be invited upto the age of 70 years. There are many early stages of cervical cancer and if picked up early is totally curable by simple treatment and no large operation is necessary. This test is carried out by the doctor or Practice Nurse as part of the well woman check.
