Immunisations

Childhood immunisations

Vaccinations can prevent your child from getting serious diseases.

We run a child immunisationclinic every Tuesday afternoon.  When you have a new baby one of our team will contact you to arrange an appointment in this clinic for their first immunisationas well as a new baby check appointment.

For other childhood immunisations, you will need to make a nurse appointment for your child in person at reception or by phone on 0203 668 3400.

See this website for the Childhood vaccination schedule NHS Choices.

Private flu vaccinations

If you are not eligible for NHS flu vaccination but would like to have one, some pharmacies can offer you the flu vaccination at a private charge. Please ask a pharmacist directly. 

Shingles immunisations

Shingles is a debilitating condition, which occurs more frequently and tends to be more severe in older people. Shingles vaccine was introduced this last year for the first time for the 70yr olds and a catch up campaign for 78 year olds. Over the next few years the scheme will be rolled out for all 70-79 year olds.

The practice will contact you about making an appointment.
