Medical Examinations
We carry out private medical examinations, which may include ECG, blood tests,  eg for insurance, HGV and PSV, at the request of third parties. These are not  covered by the NHS and do incur a charge. We can provide a chaperone for any examination upon request.

Tetanus
If you have received five doses in your lifetime you will no  longer receive routine boosters. However, if you suffer a tetanus-prone injury, or will be travelling to a  country where a tetanus shot would be required, you will be offered a booster dose.

Diphtheria
Anyone born before 1979 will not have full diphtheria immunity, which, as with  tetanus, is five doses. This will be offered if you are travelling abroad.

Travel
We offer health advice and vaccinations to travellers. Some vaccinations have to be paid for. Please make an appointment with the nurse  at least six weeks before travel. Some malaria tablets are obtainable without prescription from the chemist. For  those that require a prescription, this is made via a private prescription for which there is a charge. Payment can only be made via cash or cheque and must be made at the time of vaccination or receipt of prescription.

We are a Yellow Fever Centre, and offer vaccinations to patients and non-patients.

Influenza/Pneumonia
We offer these vaccinations to all our patients who fall into the relevant age category or those at particular risk from heart, chest, diabetic and medical conditions.  The vaccination targets "killer" strains of 'flu' which have caused epidemics in this country over the last few years.
