Prevention of Illness

Immunisation

We are keen to prevent infectious diseases by offering a full range of immunisations. These can be arranged by making an appointment with one of our Nurses or, in the case of a child, by seeing the Health Visitor on a Wednesday afternoon.

Cervical Smears

Women over the age of 25 years should have a cervical smear every three years until the age of 50.  Women aged 50 – 64 years should have a cervical smear every five years.  Smears can be arranged by one of our Nurses.
