Smoking Cessation Support
Smoking Cessation support is offered by Well Pharmacies and Rowland's Pharmacies. For general enquiries you can ring FREEPHONE - 0800 085 8818.
Immunisation and Travel Advice
Routine immunisations required within the UK, eg tetanus and polio, can be given by appointment at nurses' general clinics.
Regular health clinics are run by the nurses. Here they give advice on aspects of healthcare for people planning to travel overseas, but note that appointments should be made well in advance of proposed travel. A charge may be made for some vaccines given at these. As appointments for these clinics at short notice may not be available, patients urgently requiring vaccines may be advised to contact local commercial travel advice clinics.
