Immunisations

Our practice provides a vaccination and immunisation service to a range of patients.

Childhood vaccination and immunisation clinics are offered every Wednesday morning.  Children and babies will be called up as their vaccinations become due.

Flu vaccinations are offered on an annual basis to patients within the NHS 'at risk' groups.  All patients over the age of 65 years of age and those in a clinical at risk group will be able to book their vaccinations from 1 September.  The flu vaccine will be offered to patients aged 50 to 64 years of age again during the 2021-2022 flu season (from 1 September 2021 to 31 March 2022).  Clinic dates and venues will be published later this year.

Other adult immunisations such as Shingles, will be offered to patients who are eligible.

Please contact our reception team if you have any queries about vaccination and immunisation.

Travel vaccinations are not currently offered during the current pandemic.  For future enquiries, please refer to the Travel Clinic section. For childhood immunisations please click here

Minor Surgery

Our doctors undertake minor surgery procedures for their patients, including aspiration and excision of cysts, excision of skin lesions, injection of joints and tendons, incision of abscesses and removal of foreign bodies. 

Procedures may be carried out in the consulting room or the nurses’ treatment room. There is a purpose built operating theatre in the Watchet Surgery for more complex procedures and patients of both surgeries may be asked to attend there.  GPs will refer our patients internally for minor surgery procedures.

Eating a healthy, balanced diet is important for maintaining health and feeling good.
