Flu vaccinations 2021/22
As you may be aware there have been various delays to flu vaccines arriving at GP surgeries this year.
We are however as confident as we can be that we will be able to run a flu clinic on Saturday 13th November.
Please do not call us at this stage – further details below.
Saturday 13th November:
18-64 AT RISK group – a unique online booking code or dedicated number to ring will be sent to you w/c 1st November.
50-64 group – a unique online booking code or dedicated number to ring will be sent to you from 5th November – numbers will depend on the take up from the At Risk group.
Over 65s – We are hoping to have some extras of the different over 65s vaccine we will inform you as soon as we know.
Please do not call the main number as they are not set-up to book in flu invites.
Booking will only be via a unique code sent to you or a separate limited access phone line.
We need to manage this as carefully as possible as not to impact on day to day surgery phone lines and staff which are extremely busy.
Thank you for your patience and apologies for the delays which have been out of our hands.
We offer the full range of childhood immunisations and strongly recommend that all children be immunised. Click here for the NHS recommended immunisation schedule. To contact us to make an appointment please call 01752 205555
If you are concerned about vaccinations, please discuss this with the health visitor or one of our health care professionals who will be able to give you informed advice.
If you are not attending with your child for their vaccination then a signed Parental Responsibility Consent form must be completed and brought with the child to the appointment. Please click on the link below to download this.
Remember that adults too should be regularly immunised against tetanus. If you have any doubts or queries about immunisations, please ask the practice nurse, health visitor or your doctor.
Our travel clinic provides comprehensive travel health advice and appropriate immunisations for your trip.
Please arrange for a consultation at least 6-8 weeks prior to departure if possible. Vaccines need time to take effect and some may require a course over several weeks.
Select the region you are travelling to find out more.
To arrange your consultation please call us on
or complete the below form and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
Please note that some travel vaccines are not covered by the NHS and therefore will be charged. This will be discussed with you at consultation and you will need to attend our private MASTA clinic at an alternative time.
If you are a new patient to the practice please also be aware that we may not have your full vaccination history therefore please bring an up to date record with you to your appointment.
Non NHS vaccinations
We are able to provide vaccinations to patients of any GP practice on a private basis in our MASTA clinic, including Hepatitis B, Meningitis B (from 2 years of age), Chickenpox (varicella), HPV and Shingles/Pneumococcal. We also provide non NHS travel vaccinations (including yellow fever), anti- malarial medication and travel related retail items.
We will provide you with up to date advice and immunisation requirements for around the world trips, and will ensure you are aware of any vaccinations which may be free of charge if offered by your GP. Some travel vaccines will require a course so please seek advice early on 01752 205556 to ensure that we are able to provide you with the best medical protection.
The private MASTA Clinic is open Tuesdays and Wednesdays 9am-1pm.
We are working under current COVID -19 guidelines and your consultation will be conducted via telephone or video prior to your attendance at the clinic for your vaccinations. At your appointment your nurse will be wearing full PPE, the room will be well ventilated and the room will be sanitised after every appointment. If you have any further questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact us.
