Vaccination

We can offer vaccines for the whole range of child and adult illness.

Chicken pox vaccines

Our chicken pox vaccine is available from anyone between aged 12 months and 65 years. It is a 2 dose course given 6 weeks apart. It is felt to reduce risks of chicken pox by over 90% and reduce risks of severe chicken pox by nearer 100%. It is a vaccine that is low risk and can be given to the majority of children.

Cost £65 per vaccine/£130 for the course

Shingles vaccine

Shingles is a reactivation of the chicken pox virus and so anyone who has chicken pox is at risk of developing shingles. It presents as a rash but can cause persistent pain that can last for years. The newer shingles vaccine (Shingrix) is 97% effective in preventing shingles and therefore protecting against chronic pain. This is a 2 course vaccination given 8 weeks apart.

Cost £200 per vaccine/£400 for the course

Pneumonia

Our pneumococcal pneumonia vaccine protects against 23 strains of pneumonia. Offered to over 65 year olds on the NHS we can offer this vaccine to anyone over the age of 18 (excluding during pregnancy). This is a one off vaccine that offers long standing protection.

Cost £80 one off vaccine

Cervical smears

Cervical screening or smears are used to take a small brushing of cells from your cervix to screen for abnormal cells that might go on to cause cervical cancer. In recent years this test has tested for high risk HPV virus which is the one that puts you at risk of cervical cancer.

Anyone with a cervix aged 25-64 are eligible for NHS screening every 3 years. Some women choose to access screening more often, or find it to hard to screening through the NHS or may just wish to attend a slower paced and more relaxed clinic.

Cost £180, results usually returned within 10 days.
