HPV immunisation aims to protect young people from HPV infection and the risk of developing cervical cancer and a range of other HPV diseases later in life. The government is now funding free HPV vaccinations for both males and females who are between 9 -26 years old, including non-residents under the age of 18.
Smoking can increase risks for many diseases, including chronic obstructive lung disease, ischaemic heart disease, stroke, pneumonia, lung, head and neck cancers and much more. We would like to assist you to stop smoking. If you are thinking about smoking cessation, please do not hesitate to contact our nurse for more information.
We are really excited to have recently signed up to ConnectMed which means that registered patients can now book their doctors appointments, request repeat medications and view their test results online.
