    Childhood Immunisations

    We are totally committed to a policy of full immunisations for all children. Invitations will be sent to the parents of all children in the practice when they are due for immunisations. It is important that your child is fully immunised against childhood illnesses.

    If it is difficult for you to attend the surgery at the clinic times please let us know and alternative arrangements can be made for you and your child.
    When immunising a child either written or verbal consent must be given by the person with parental responsibility. The decision to immunise must be taken by the person with parental responsibility, however, the parents can arrange for someone else (e.g. grandparent) to bring the child, but written parental consent is required on every occasion they attend for immunisation. The person giving the immunisation must be satisfied that parental consent has been obtained at each visit. If in doubt, the vaccination will be postponed

    For the latest guidance on recommended childhood immunisations please refer to the information detailed within the baby clinic section.

BOOSTER JABS

In line with the Government’s announcement, the NHS is aiming to offer every adult the chance to book a COVID-19 booster vaccine by the end of the year. This means our practice is now prioritising the booster rollout.

As part of this, some of our routine services may be stood down temporarily to allow us to focus on protecting as many patients as possible.

We are still there for anyone who may need care for an urgent need, but would ask for patience as we support this key national priority over the coming weeks. We hope to be able to stand back up any services as soon as possible and will update this page as soon as we know more.

Please don’t forget there are many services available for you, depending on your condition. These include:

Self-care – This is the best choice to treat minor illnesses and injuries such as hangovers, coughs, colds, grazes, small cuts or sore throats. Many of these can be treated at home, simply with over-the-counter medicines and plenty of rest.
Pharmacy – Pharmacists can give advice on and treat a range of symptoms. They can support you with things such as diarrhoea, earaches, painful coughs, sticky eyes, teething and rashes.
NHS 111 – You can access 111 online or via the telephone. This is for any urgent but non-life threatening health concerns. They will be able to signpost you to the relevant service and provide advice where appropriate, or book you in to an Urgent Treatment Centre.
A&E / 999 – You should only attend A&E or dial 999 in a life-threatening emergency such as severe bleeding, breathing difficulties and severe chest pain.

If you are now eligible for your COVID-19 booster please book it as soon as you can. It is vital as many people as possible get boosted as soon as possible. Please do not ring the practice regarding your boosters, instead visit Covid-19 Vaccine | City Of Wolverhampton Council or call 119 to book an appointment or to find a walk-in clinic near you. You can also find out more about who is eligible, how the vaccine is given and other frequently asked questions. If you are a housebound patient, there is a community team which will be coming out to you to vaccinate you, so please do not contact your GP as the team will be making contact with you.
