Child health

And if you have children, remember you can prevent many very serious childhood diseases by making sure your child gets all the recommended immunisations. For further information, visit the Immunisation: NHS website. Apart from one injection that is given at school, all childhood immunisations are available at the practice. And it's never too late. The Practice's Vaccinations service can help you.
