Noticeboard

Following the news about the proposed closure of St Damian’s Surgery, Wiltshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) have instructed us NOT to accept any new registrations from St Damian’s patients at this stage.


The usual level of care is available at St Damian’s until the end of the year by which time the CCG hope to have completed their consultation with local practices and patients regarding arrangements for registration.


If you wish to consider registering with us, please check with us again in the New Year.

Thank you for your understanding,
Dr Rob Matthews & Partners

Child Health

'6 week checks'

This service is carried out by a number of GPs in the practice and consists of a physical examination when your baby is 6 - 8 weeks old. It also allows an opportunity to discuss any problems or concerns you may have with the GP. You will receive an appointment for your baby via the Practice Administrator at Spa Medical Centre.

Immunisations

injectionYour Health Visitor will advise you when your child needs immunisations. These are very important to protect you child and to eradicate serious disease from the population.  They are all very safe.

There is no need to delay immunisations because of a slight cold.  If you are unsure, there is always a GP or Nurse available to check your child before immunisation.

Child Immunisations are by appointment.  You will be contacted by phone or letter with an appointment time and date for your child’s immunisation. 

The following link will provide you with further information about the immunisation schedules:

Immunisation Schedules

Please phone Marcia Weeks on 01225 898009 to cancel if you are unable to make the appointment, it can then be offered to someone else.

Children who are behind with this schedule should catch up as soon as possible.  Please ring Marcia on the number above and she will find out the current guidance and get back to you.
