The practice is fully committed to the immunisation of infants and children as a protection against disease.
Childhood Immunisations are carried out by the nursing team and you will be notified by letter when these are due.
If your child is unwell or you are unable to attend for any reason please contact the surgery to re-arrange the appointment.

Minor Injury service
As part of the broader range of services the practice offers we are providing a minor injury service to patients. This service is intended as an alternative to attendance at the hospital Accident and Emergency department for those injuries that are simply treated. Our nursing team will assess the injury and if possible provide treatment at the surgery, saving you a trip to Huntingdon. Attendance should be within 48 hours of the event which caused the injury. Ankle and other joint injuries, twists and sprains, cuts, bruises and removal of foreign bodies are a few examples of the injuries that we would expect to be able to treat.
