Our practice nurses are available by appointment to offer medical advice regarding travel and vaccinations where appropriate.

Do plan ahead – do not leave your vaccinations until the last minute.

Fees are payable for some travel vaccinations, advice and record cards.

Management of common/minor ailments

Many conditions get better by themselves and can be treated successfully at home. Your pharmacist may be able to help you with these and advise about medicines you can buy over the counter.
