Diabetes/Cardiovascular Clinic - we hold a clinics where patients who have diabetes and/or cardiovascular problems are given a full annual check together with a medication review. Patients are called and recalled routinely to attend this clinic.
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
Thevaccines we offer are:-
The nurse will check your records to make sure that you are up to date with Measles, Mumps and Rubellaand Diphtheria Tetanus and Polio.
If youneed any other vaccines for your trip, (e.g. Yellow Fever, Meningitis ACWY,Rabies, T.B.) you will need to make an appointment with the School of tropical medicine, PembrokePlace, Liverpool, Telephone number 0151 705 3100.
The nurse will advise you on Malaria prophylaxis. If you need a private prescription for yourmalaria tablets there will be a charge of £15 paid on receipt of theprescription.
Having atravel clinic appointment is not anemergency. If you are a late traveler you can get your travelvaccines at the airport. For further information please visit Lastminutejabs.com.

Influenza is a serious disease that can lead to hospitalization and sometimes even death. Every flu season is different, and influenza infection can affect people differently. Even healthy people can get very sick from the flu and spread it to others.
An annual seasonal flu vaccine is the best way to reduce the chances that you will get seasonal flu and lessen the chance that you will spread it to others. When more people get vaccinated against the flu, less flu can spread through that community.
Patients that are usually eligible for a flu vaccination are those patients that fall into one the following categories:
As we have limited stock of flu vaccinations, it is important that we prioritise our supplies for those patients who do fall into one of the above categories.
If you do fall into one of the above categories, then please contact the practice to book an appointment for your vaccination.
We are expecting our flu vaccinations during September and have planned Flu Clinics on the following dates;
These clinics are by APPOINTMENT ONLY and are not a drop in clinic
Fluenz is a new vaccination that is given to patients between the ages of 24 months and 18 years of age. When a person is given the vaccine, the immune system (the body's natural defense system) will produce its own protection against the influenza virus. The vaccine is administered in the form of a nasal spray and none of the ingredients contained in the vaccine can cause flu.
The practice will contact the parents/guardians of all of the patients who are eligible to have this vaccination in due course.
