Immunisations services are one of the most important services we provide. Immunisation has led to the decline of many lethal diseases including, most recently, meningococcal B meningitis.
Babies are routinely immunised for tetanus, polio, diphtheria, hepatitis B and haemophilus, which are now combined in one injection.
Injections are normally be done by specially qualified nurses or doctors, having ensured beforehand that the child is not ill or suffering from allergies.
Each child has his or her own document to keep a record of these injections.
Liquid Nitrogen Therapy
Liquid nitrogen is a fast, effective treatment to treat viral warts, sun damaged skin, skin tags and many benign cosmetic lesions.
It comes in a container with a nozzle and is sprayed on the lesion. Often one treatment is all that is needed but sometimes it may need repeating after few days.
We provide this service five days a week, please walk in any time for the treatment
