Diptheria, Tetanus & Polio (3 In 1) (£35)
A combination vaccine called Revaxis is available to protect adults against Diphtheria, Tetanus and Polio. Children normally receive these vaccinations as part of the national schedule. Travellers should ensure that they have had a primary course of vaccine and receive a booster every 10 years if they are travelling to an area where diphtheria, tetanus or polio are considered high risk.Recommendations for travellersTetanus is a serious disease of the central nervous system that is caused by bacteria that is found in soil. The disease is spread through open cuts and wounds that have been contaminated with infected soil.Tetanus is found throughout the world.Tetanus toxin spreads through the bloodstream and can cause serious damage to the nervous system. Early symptoms of the disease include stiffness of the jaw muscles (lockjaw), difficulties swallowing and muscle spasms. The disease can spread to affect more muscles in the body including the respiratory muscles. This can cause difficulties with breathing and death can occur.Treatment for tetanus usually involves giving immunoglobulin and antibiotics. Those infected will often require intensive care until the effects of the disease wear off.
Hepatitis B (£35 per dose) -
Hepatitis B is an infection of the liver caused by a virus that's spread through blood and body fluids.Hepatitis B vaccination What is it?It often doesn't cause any obvious symptoms in adults and typically passes in a few months without treatment. But in children, it often persists for years and may eventually cause serious liver damage.3 DOSES REQUIRED £35 A DOSE Hepatitis B is less common in the UK than other parts of the world, but certain groups are at an increased risk. This includes people originally from high-risk countries, people who inject drugs and people who have unprotected sex with multiple sexual partners.Hepatitis B is 100 times more infectious than HIV.
Rabies (£55 per dose)
RABIES VACCINATION - 3 DOSES REQUIRED IF TRAVELLING TO A COUNTRY WITH HIGH RISK.Rabies is a rare but very serious infection of the brain and nerves.

It's not found in the UK except in a small number of wild bats.It's almost always fatal once symptoms appear, but treatment before this happens is very effective. There's also a vaccine for people at risk of being infected.
Typhoid Fever is a bacterial infection that can cause intestinal bleeding, toxic heart disease, pneumonia, seizures and swelling of the brain. It is transmitted when food or water that has been contaminated is ingested. Travel PrecautionsTyphoid is a vaccine preventable disease. The vaccine is a single dose.

Chronic Medication Service (CMS)
Chronic Medication Service (CMS) - Helping you manage your NHS repeats
If you have one or more long-term conditions you may be eligible for the Chronic Medication Service.There are three parts to the service: 1) Reviewing your use of medicines: if you register for the service, your pharmacist will look at how you use your medicines. They will then discuss with you any problems you may have with your medicines and whether you should get a CMS care plan. 2) CMS care plan: this plan helps your pharmacist give you more regular care and advice about your medicines. They will give you a copy of your care plan and may also speak to your doctor about it. 3) Serial prescriptions: you may be able to get serial prescriptions from your doctor so you can get some medicines on a long-term, repeat prescription. This is different from having a normal repeat prescription. It looks like a normal prescription but lasts for 24 or 48 weeks. With a serial prescription, you can get medicines directly from the pharmacy where you are registered. Get in touch today to find out if you are eligible.

CHICKENPOX is a viral illness that most children catch at some point. It most commonly affects children under 10 years of age.A rash of itchy spots turns into fluid-filled blisters. They crust over to form scabs, which after a while drop off. Some children only have a few spots, whereas others have them over their entire body. The spots are most likely to appear on the face, ears and scalp, under the arms, on the chest and belly, and on the arms and legs.There's no specific treatment for chickenpox, but you can take steps to relieve the symptoms. For example, paracetamol can help relieve fever (don't give aspirin to children under 16), and calamine lotion and cooling gels can be used to ease itching.

Each year, thousands of people die of complications after catching the flu. Find out how colds and flu differ.Colds and flu share some of the same symptoms (cough, sore throat), but are caused by different viruses. Flu can be much more serious than a cold.If you're generally fit and healthy, you can usually manage the symptoms of a cold or flu yourself without seeing your GP. Cold and flu symptoms are similar but flu tends to be more severe. Colds cause more nasal problems than flu. Fever, fatigue and muscle aches are more likely and more severe with flu.Symptoms of colds and flu can include: A cold develops gradually over one or two days and you're most contagious during the early stages when you have a runny nose and sore throat. You should begin to feel better after a few days but some colds can last up to two weeks.Flu usually comes on much more quickly than a cold, and symptoms appear one to three days after infection. You should begin to feel better within a week or so, but you may feel tired for much longer.Whether it's a cold or flu, BOOK FOR A TRAIGE APPOINTMENT IF YOU hYou may be more at risk of serious complications, such as pneumoniaand bronchitis if you:Everyone in an at-risk group is eligible for a free flu vaccination. Read more about how to manage symptoms of flu if you are in an at-risk group.Cold and flu viruses are spread when you breathe in droplets that are coughed or sneezed out by an infected person. You can also catch a cold or flu by touching an infected object or surface and then touching your eyes and nose.
Cold sores are small blisters that develop on the lips or around the mouth. They're caused by the herpes simplex virus and usually clear up without treatment within 7 to 10 days.What causes cold sores?Herpes simplex virusTreating cold soresYou may not have any symptoms when you first become infected with the herpes simplex virus. An outbreak of cold sores may happen some time later.Cold sores often start with a tingling, itching or burning sensation around your mouth. Small fluid-filled sores then appear, usually on the edges of your lower lip.Read more about the symptoms of cold sores.See your GP if a cold sore hasn't healed after 7 to 10 days.The herpes simplex virus is responsible for cold sores. There are two strains, known as HSV-1 and HSV-2.Read more about the causes of cold sores.The herpes simplex virus – or "cold sore virus" – is highly contagious and can be easily passed from person to person by close direct contact. After someone has contracted the virus, it remains inactive (dormant) most of the time.However, every so often the virus can be activated by certain triggers, resulting in an outbreak of cold sores. These triggers vary from person to person, but can include sunlight, fatigue, an injury to the affected area, and, in women, their period.Some people have frequently recurring cold sores around two or three times a year, while others have one cold sore and never have another. Some people never get cold sores at all because the virus never becomes active.Cold sores usually clear up by themselves without treatment within 7 to 10 days.However, antiviral creams are available over the counter from pharmacies without a prescription. If used correctly, these can help ease your symptoms and speed up the healing time.To be effective, these treatments should be applied as soon as the first signs of a cold sore appear – when you feel a tingling, itching or burning sensation around your mouth. Using an antiviral cream after this initial period is unlikely to have much of an effect.Cold sore patches are also available that contain hydrocolloid gel, which is an effective treatment for skin wounds. The patch is placed over the cold sore while it heals.Antiviral tablets may be prescribed for severe cases.Read more about treating cold sores.
Conjunctivitis is a common condition that causes redness and inflammation of the thin layer of tissue that covers the front of the eye (the conjunctiva).People often refer to conjunctivitis as red eye.Other symptoms of conjunctivitis include itchiness and watering of the eyes, and sometimes a sticky coating on the eyelashes (if it's caused by an allergy).

IInjections of filler are placed in the vermillion border which separates the body of the lip from the skin. A given lip shape can only be enhanced with dermal filler treatment, it cannot be altered into another lip shape. Avoid this treatment if you have a very thin, diminutive upper lip as filler treatment along the border in this situation can lead to projection of the upper lip and an unaesthetic outcome. Typically one syringe is enough to treat both upper and lower borders. Recommended filler: Teosyal Global Action, Teosyal RHA
