Travel Clinics

If you are travelling abroad you may need immunisations. For more information on our travel clinics, please click on this link: Travel Clinic

Family Planning

A comprehensive, confidential service including the provision of emergency contraception is available within normal surgery hours. Appointments can be made with any of the doctors or practice nurses.

Immunisations (children)

The practice encourages parents to ensure that their children are fully immunised before they reach school age. This gives maximum possible protection against a number of infectious diseases.

Immunisations (adults)

The practice offers a full range of immunisations for adults including tetanus and influenza. The annual “flu jabs” are usually given in September or October. Patients are invited to attend according to criteria such as their age and whether or not they have conditions such as diabetes or asthma. Any patients who may be unsure about whether flu immunisation is advisable are asked to contact the practice nurses who will provide advice. The practice nurses also advise patients about immunisations and health protection with regard to travelling abroad.

Antenatal and Postnatal Care

Antenatal and Postnatal clinics are held within the practice and are usually arranged through the main GP reception. The antenatal clinics are run by the midwives, and are held weekly within the practice – please contact reception for further information.

Private Services

The practice is able to provide an extensive range of private medical services to individual patients and organisations. These include: medicals, certificates, non-NHS vaccinations, employment medicals and the treatment of works injuries. If medical examinations are needed in order to obtain certificates for driving taxis or heavy goods vehicles, or to certify fitness to undertake sports or to travel, then a special appointment must be made and a fee will be payable.


Message to our patients – update on the COVID-19 booster programme.

The NHS and its partners are working extremely hard to roll out the COVID-19 booster vaccination programme to our communities.
All adults are eligible from Monday 13 December, and you will be able to book via the National Booking System from Wednesday 15 December.

Please do not contact the practice over any vaccination queries or try to book through the practice as this will stop patients with medical conditions being able to get through.

You can book your booster for 3 months from the date of second vaccine, and you can access the National Booking System to book the appointment from 2 months.

We are working at pace to increase the availability of appointments so that there are plenty of options for people on the National Booking System. Some local vaccination services will also contact patients directly.

New appointments are being added every day across our vaccination services. Further availability will come online from Wednesday 15 December.

We will be working with all our sites to take further steps to increase what they can offer again, including opening later and on more days.
All these appointments will be added to the National Booking System. We encourage everyone who is aged 18 and over, is yet to have their booster and who is approaching 3 months from your second vaccine to use the National Booking System to arrange your appointment when you are able to do so.

In terms of any planned appointments with The Castle Medical Group, there are no changes at the current time, and everyone should attend your planned appointments as normal. If we need to make any changes, we will contact you directly.
