Chickenpox

The chickenpox vaccine protects against the varicella zoster virus that causes chickenpox. The chickenpox vaccine is not part of the routine childhood vaccination schedule.  Two doses are recommended as this gives an even better immune response. There is a charge for this vaccination (£130 for full course).

Shingles vaccination

You are eligible for the vaccination if you are aged 70 or 78 years old.

Vitamin B12 – Folate Deficiency Anaemia

Vitamin B12 deficiency anaemia is usually treated with injections of vitamin B12, in a form called hydroxocobalamin. At first, you will have these injections frequently until your symptoms have started improving. These injections are given by the practice nurse.

Whooping Cough

You can have this vaccination from 16 weeks, during pregnancy to protect you and your baby.

RETIREMENT ANNOUNCMENT

 

To All Patients, past and present,

 

It has been a pleasure serving you and the local community during the past 37 years as a GP. With a certain degree of sadness, I have decided to retire at the end of August this year, 2021. Dr Bamford and Dr Salim will remain partners at the Earlsfield Practice and a new GP partner will be appointed in due course. You do not need to do anything regarding your registration. The Earlsfield Practice staff will continue to provide care for all those who are registered at the practice.

 

I wish you all the very best of health, happiness and prosperity for the future.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Dr David Gordon
