You can therefore assume that if you do not hear from us, your retionpathy screening is satisfactory and you will be recalled in approximately one year's time.
The Practice has received notification from the Public Health Agency asking us to promote vaccination of children who have not completed a full course of MMR vaccine. To be fully protected each child requires 2 doses of MMR.
MMR is normally offered at just after the 1st birthday and at 3 years 4 months of age.
If your child is not protected, please contact the surgery and we can arrange an appointment for you.
