Appointments will be sent out for our immunisation clinics, which run at Parkfield Medical Centre every Tuesday from 09:00 – 12:30. Appointments can be arranged at Woodcross Health Centre. Please contact us at the practice if you need to make an alternative immunisation appointment or if you have any anxieties or queries regarding immunisations.
We run a child health clinic for pre-school children at Woodcross every other Tuesday from 13:30 – 15:00. In order to book an appointment you will need to call the Child Health Surveillance team 01902 444692 between the hours of 2.00pm - 4.00pm Monday to Friday. Please note these clinics are not for sick children because of the risk of infection to other people's babies and children.
If you are unable to attend the above clinic, the Child Health Surveillance team also run a clinic every other Friday between 1:30pm and 3:00pm at Phoenix Health Centre, Parkfield Road.
Midwives visit the practice twice a week and run antenatal clinics. They can deal with all issues relating to pregnancy. If you are pregnant please make an appointment to book in with the midwives.
Cervical smears are available under the screening programme and when clinically indicated. Please make an appointment with one of our practice nurses.
We offer a full range of advice and information regarding contraception options.
We run a number of special review clinics. If you are receiving treatment for a long-term condition or have had particular health problems in the past, you will be invited for an annual review with our highly trained nursing team. At this review, you will be given an opportunity to discuss any health issues that you have and any medication you are taking will be reviewed.
Dr Latunji is a fully trained and fully qualified surgeon. He provides a comprehensive service of surgery, which can be performed under local anaesthetic. This includes removal of lumps and bumps and joint injections. If you need his services please see a member of the clinical team.
NHS Health Checks
You may be eligible for an NHS health check if you are aged between 45-74. Please contact the surgery for further details.
Immunisations and vaccinations are available via our practice nurse team. For travel advice and vaccinations or routine health vaccinations, please make an appointment with the practice nurses. If you have never been immunised in order to ensure protection, vaccinations need to be given 6 weeks prior to travel.
Pneumovax vaccine which is also available protects the body against bacteria that can cause serious disease such as pneumonia, blood poisoning and meningitis. It is recommended for everyone over 65 years of age and others with long-standing ill health. Please enquire at reception if you think you are eligible for this vaccine.
Children aged between 2 and 3 will be given flu immunisations in the Practice. Children aged between 4 and 9 will be immunised in school.
It is important to make contact with the surgery as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - so that a nurse can contact you regarding your travel requirements. Please have your travel and medical history available, as well as clear details regarding the countries and duration of your travel, when the nurse contacts you.
Following your telephone consultation a nurse appointment will normally be given for you to receive your vaccinations. Some vaccines may not be stocked at the Practice and may have to be ordered.
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.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below:
