Examinations are arranged by appointment only. Please telephone the surgery for an appointment and contact reception for the charges for the services.
Travel vaccination services are provided when there is sufficient nurse cover. Please check with Reception and make an appointment at least four weeks in advance of your holiday to ensure adequate cover. A maximum of two appointments per family can be given at a time.
