A pneumococcal infection can affect anyone. However, some groups of people have a higher risk of the infection developing into a serious health condition. These include children who are under two years of age, adults who are 65 years of age or over and people with certain chronic (long-term) health conditions, such as a serious heart or kidney condition. Your doctor will advise you on whether the vaccination is appropriate and necessary for you.

Health screening is a proactive approach to effective health and lifestyle management. This form of health screening is aimed at early identification of medical conditions which could cause ill health and even premature death. Such examples include heart disease, cancers and mental health disorders for example depression.
A blood test involves a sample of blood taken for testing to assess your general state of health, confirm the presence of a bacterial or viral infection, see how well certain organs such as the liver and kidneys are functioning or to check your blood count plus vitamin levels.
A cervical smear test is a method of detecting abnormal (pre-cancerous) cells in the cervix in order to prevent cervical cancer. Cervical screening is not a test for cancer; it is a test to check the health of the cells of the cervix. Cells in the cervix change in appearance before they become cancerous so a cervical smear test can detect warning signs that cancer might develop in the future.
We provide out of hours GP care for patients with urgent medical problems who need to contact a doctor after GP surgeries close. Please check your GP Practice ‘opening hours’ page’ for details of ‘out of hours’ service.
