As a parent, you may not like seeing your baby or child being given an injection. However, vaccination will help protect them against a range of serious and potentially fatal diseases.
There are three good reasons to have your child vaccinated:
There will always be some children who are unavoidably unprotected because:
However, if more parents have their children vaccinated, then more children in the community will be protected against illness. This lowers the chance of a measles outbreak.
Due to children not being vaccinated, the UK has now lost its measles-free status three years after the virus was eliminated in the country.
This potentially deadly and extremely contagious infection can be prevented through at least two doses of the MMR vaccine; this is provided by the NHS and given to our own patients for FREE.
Most patients who do catch measles will recover; however, it can lead to life-threatening complications.
The majority of new measles cases have been patients that were NOT vaccinated as a child; as a consequence has contracted this infection in their younger adulthood.
If your child is able to have a vaccine, has not yet had it and overdue please call us on 01273 492255 and we can book them in with our nurse.
If you are now an adult and you believe you are not up to date on your MMR vaccine please give us a call and we can check whether you are up to date, alternatively, you can sign up for our online services where you should be able to see any immunisations you have had.
For more information on the current outbreak please click HERE.

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.
Please note we now only give the Yellow Fever Vaccinations to patients aged under 60.
For those aged 60 and over will need to go to a private clinic, such as:
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.

Henfield Medical Centre carries out research in collaboration with the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR), the research arm of the NHS. You can find out more about the NIHR here: http://www.nihr.ac.uk/
We are grateful to the patients and carers who can give their time and commitment to help with medical research.
Studies can vary from observational projects, questionnaire studies the uses of new medication and longer-term research following patients with various conditions for many years. Such studies may aim to help with the development of treatments, pathways of care and improving patient care.
Henfield Medical Centre has previously supported various research projects including HEAT Study, Internet Doctor Study, 3C Study, FAST Study.
Research is important to patients because it can help work out which treatments work better for which patients. Although patients may not directly benefit from taking part in researches themselves, they may help inform better healthcare for future patients.
The “Ok to ask” campaign encourages more patients or carers to ask about research opportunities that could be available to them or loved ones.
You can read more about this here: http://www.nihr.ac.uk/news-and-events/support-our-campaigns/ok-to-ask/
