Now it’s coming up to the summer holiday months, it’s time to think about what vaccinations you may require. If you are going abroad and think you require travel injections, please contact the surgery who will be able to arrange a telephone appointment with one of our Health Care Assistants who will be happy to help you. Some vaccinations (not all) carry a charge, for example Yellow Fever vaccination costs £45. For other vaccination advice and charges, please contact the surgery to speak to one of our Health Care Assistants.
