COVID Vaccine Update

We and many other Practices have just been advised that we will not be receiving any Covid Vaccine supplies this week. We will therefore not be able to run covid vaccination clinics next week.

Our Clinics

At yours baby’s first assessment you will be asked to sign a form authorising your consent for any immunisations to be given.
