 You may be aware that King Street Surgery will be merging with four other Hereford medical practices on the 1st July 2018, to become Hereford Medical Group.

Unfortunately, as a result of the merger process all Patient Access on-line services will be unavailable from the 1st May until the 2nd July 2018.

 

The following on-line Patient Access services will be unavailable from 1st May to 2nd July:

Ordering repeat prescriptions, booking appointments, sending electronic messages, changing address details and registering as a new patient.

 

Please phone our prescription line 9.30am-12.30pm Monday to Friday on the above numbers option 2, alternatively you can e-mail kingst.prescriptions@nhs.net or order in person at either site in writing.

To register as a new patient you must visit the surgery.

 

After the 2nd July 2018, patients who wish to use the Patient Access on-line services will be required to re-register for this service, by visiting reception at King Street Surgery or at another of the Hereford Medical Group sites with a form of ID.  We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.  We would like to thank you for your understanding and patience during our merger process.


Childhood Vaccinations


One of the most important things that a parent can do for their child is to make sure that they have all their routine childhood vaccinations. It's the most effective way of keeping them protected against infectious diseases.

 

Ideally, kids should have their jabs at the right age to protect them as early as possible and minimise the risk of infection.


Vaccination Checklist

 

Here's a checklist of the vaccines that are routinely offered to everyone in the UK for free on the NHS, and the age at which you should ideally have them.

 

2 months:

  • Diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis (whooping cough), polio and Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib, a bacterial infection that can cause severe pneumonia or meningitis in young children) given as a 5-in-1 single jab known as DTaP/IPV/Hib
  • Pneumococcal infection

3 months:

  • 5-in-1, second dose (DTaP/IPV/Hib)
  • Meningitis C
4 months:
  • 5-in-1, third dose (DTaP/IPV/Hib)
  • Pneumococcal infection, second dose
  • Meningitis C, second dose

Between 12 and 13 months:

  • Meningitis C, third dose
  • Hib, fourth dose (Hib/MenC given as a single jab)
  • MMR (measles, mumps and rubella), given as a single jab
  • Pneumococcal infection, third dose
3 years and 4 months, or soon after:
  • MMR second jab
  • Diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis and polio (DtaP/IPV), given as a 4-in-1 pre-school booster
Around 12-13 years:
  • Cervical cancer (HPV) vaccine, which protects against cervical cancer (girls only): three jabs given within six months
Around 13-18 years:
  • Diphtheria, tetanus and polio booster (Td/IPV), given as a single jab
65 and over:
  • Flu (every year)
  • Pneumococcal

Vaccines For Risk Groups

 

People who fall into certain risk groups may be offered extra vaccines. These include vaccinations against diseases such as hepatitis B, tuberculosis (TB), seasonal flu and chickenpox. See the NHS Choices pages on vaccines for adults to find out whether you should have one.
