Meningitis Vaccination

Meningitis ACWY can be offered to students up to 25 years old, who are entering university for the first time and, have not already received a dose of Meningitis ACWY after their tenth birthday. Ideally at least two weeks before attending university to ensure timely protection. If you fulfil this criteria, and would like to be vaccinated, please request an appointment with our Practice Nurse.

Would you like to be part of our Virtual Patient Participation Group?

We would send occasional newsletters and surveys and it would really reduce our costs and enable us to communicate more effectively with patients about surgery information.  We do not offer medical advice via email or encourage patients to email rather than contact us by telephone as our systems are not set up to deal with a massive amount of requests in this way.  If you would like to be part of our Virtual Patient Participation please call 01278 722077.
