Well Person & Adult Immunisations

Well Person Checks

We offer appointments with our Practice Nurses for well woman and well man checks.

You can discuss your general health and have your weight, cholesterol and blood pressure checked. You can also get dietary advice and if you wish to stop smoking advice can be given.

Health Checks

If you are aged between 40 – 74 you can also book for a Health Check. You may be at risk of heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, diabetes or dementia. A free NHS Health Check can help reduce these risks and make sure that you stay healthy.

Shingles vaccinations

About one in five people who have had chickenpox develop shingles. It is more common in people aged 70 years and over. Of these, about 14,000 go to develop long term pain and over 1400 are admitted to hospital because of it each year.

By having the vaccination you will be significantly reducing your chances of developing shingles. And, if you do go on to have shingles the symptoms may be milder and the illness shorter, than if you had not had the vaccination.

The vaccine is being offered to all people aged:


78 and 79

If you fall into one of these age groups and would like a shingles vaccination please contact the surgery and arrange an appointment with the practice nurse.
