Whooping Cough in pregnancy
There has recently been a rapid rise in whooping cough, with a big increase in young babies. Due to this information it is important that we protect those young babies who may suffer. The babies that suffer are usually too young to have their first vaccinations, therefore the only way pregnant ladies can protect their baby is to have the vaccination themselves while they are pregnant. The best time to get the vaccination is between 28 and 32 weeks. Please contact the surgery for more information.
Anyone aged 65 and over is entitled to Pneumonia vaccinations from the NHS. If you fall into this age catagory and have not previously had this vaccination please contact the surgery, for an appointment.
We have a service for a text message reminder for pre-booked appointments. We need to collect up-to-date mobile contact numbers for this!! Please contact us, or fill in the " your contact details" form from the link on our home page
