Cervical Cancer Vaccination for Girls
The government has started its program of vaccinating 12+ year old girls against cervical cancer. This is organised through the secondary school system. Older girls up to 18 years old will be invited to have their vaccinations at the surgery but the administration is through the Health Protection Agency and they will be called when due. The Department of Health have chosen Cervirix as the vaccine they are using. In trials it seems to protect for longer and better against the strains of virus that cause cervical cancer.
Other clinics include:
- Slimming clinic
- Counter weight (weight reduction clinic)
- Stop smoking clinic
Book an appointment to see the doctor for initial assessment.
You can telephone the surgery and book into any of the above clinics. The clinics are nurse led and have a doctor available if necessary
