It is recommended that all children are vaccinated against infectious diseases. The vaccination schedule can be found by clicking here.
- Flu – Vaccinations against flu are available from September to March every year and is recommended for patients who are at ‘high risk’ from the complications influenza can cause. These patients include anyone aged over 65, patients suffering from heart disease, diabetes, stroke, respiratory diseases (asthma, COPD etc), kidney disease, patients who have a condition or are receiving treatment that will lower their immune system, i.e. splenectomy, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, etc. and patients living in residential/care homes. The surgery will give priority to the above patients.
- Pneumonia – It is recommended that anyone over the age of 65 or suffer from immune suppressed conditions should be vaccinated against the complications pneumonia can cause. These vaccinations are available all year round.
The practice offers a full range of surgical procedures under local anaesthetic. Please make an appointment with one of the GPs for further details.
- Cervical Screening (Smear Test) – This test is recommended for women aged between 25 and 65 to allow early detection and treatment of cervical cancer. You will be invited by letter when your test is due and you will be seen by the Practice Nurse. You would normally receive your results via the Health Authority. If you have any queries or concerns over this screening or your result, please speak to one of our Nurses who will be happy to discuss them with you.

You will then be requested to contact the maternity ward at Clacton Hospital for subsequent follow up appointments. If at any time you have any concerns, please contact the Midwifery team or make an appointment to see one of the GPs at the practice. Following the birth an appointment should be made for when baby is eight weeks old for his/her developmental check, 1st baby vaccines along with postnatal check.
