We give Meningitis B vaccine to our NHS patients as advised by the Department of Health.
The current ages are shown at: http://www.nhs.uk/conditions/vaccinations/pages/meningitis-b-vaccine.aspx
We understand that parents may wish to give this vaccine to their children outside the current NHS recommended age groups. NHS GPs are legally prevented from giving this vaccine privately to their own registered patients and so we unfortunately cannot provide this service. We are unable to recommend a specific private clinic.
For further information please see: http://www.nhsemployers.org/your-workforce/primary-care-contacts/general-medical-services/faqs-and-queries/vi-faqs#CAN
We understand that these children will be offered flu vaccines at school in January 2016 by the school vaccination service.
If your child has an underlying condition (such as diabetes, heart or lung disease) they can be given the vaccine in surgery before this time -please contact reception to arrange this.

Thank you to those patients who completed the PPG questionnaires at Sawley recently. The results have been compiled by the Patient Participation Group and a summary of these results is now available within the PPG section of this website.
We have an increasing volume of calls for urgent telephone advice. As a trial, some of these patients may now be rung back by a nurse or nurse practitioner initially to try and speed up our response to you and allow those who need GP advice to receive it more quickly.
Thank you to those patients who completed the PPG questionnaires in June 2014. We are pleased to let you know that the results have now been compiled by the Patient Participation Group and a summary of these results is now available within the PPG section of this website.
