For registered patients over 65 years of age and those in at risk categories, the practice offers flu vaccinations. Vaccinations will take place in Autumn each year and the Medical Centre will publicise the campaign.
For patients aged over 65 who have not already had one, the practice recommends they have a pneumococcal vaccination. With todays vaccinations you only need one in a lifetime.
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.
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.
Travel Health Questionnaire
What you have to do:
Complete and sign a Travel Questionnaire Form which you can collect from Reception or download online (SEE LINK BELOW). For each person travelling making sure that everyone signs the consent section to enable a designated person to discuss multiple requirements where applicable.
Hand the completed form to the receptionist at least 6 weeks prior to travel
The Travel Clinic Nurse will telephone you within 14 days to discuss your requirements and book your appointment
Travelling in Europe
If you are travelling to Europe the EU has published useful information for travellers on the European website.
Some services provided are not covered under our contract with the NHS and therefore attract charges. Examples include the following:
The fees charged are based on the British Medical Association (BMA) suggested scales and our reception staff will be happy to advise you about them along with appointment availability.
Please note we do not sign passport applications

Clevedon Medical Centre is delighted to be able to deliver primary care research to our patient population, giving our patients the opportunity to be involved in important research in order to make a difference to the future of healthcare.
The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) is the entity that supports the health and care research infrastructure within the NHS. The infrastructure is made up of 15 local Clinical Research Networks (CRNs). CRNs support patients and health professionals to support, deliver and participate in relevant research studies.
Our local CRN is the West of England hosted by the University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust. We work closely with the primary care research network within this organisation supporting feasible local and national studies hosted by our network.
Each year we submit our application to be part of the research site initiative scheme. This provides us with funding to host a large number of research projects and the infrastructure to invite and deliver them to our patient population.
We currently hold the top tier status of research known as sessional.
In order to maintain this status we need to deliver high quality of research opportunities to our patients. We also collaborate with recognised research groups outside of the local CRN in order to bring more opportunities for our patients to become involved in primary care research.
We are a research ready practice, a stipulated requirement to be able to conduct research in primary care.
We may invite you to participate, either opportunistically during an appointment, or by letter.
Participation is entirely optional and we never release your details to a third party without your prior consent.
