Clinics & Services
We offer the following services at the practice:
Llanfyllin Medical Centre is an authorised Yellow Fever Vaccination Centre
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel please make a telephone appointment in the first instance with the travel 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
Europe & Russia
Australasia and Pacific
It is important to make this initial telephone 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.

Get Support to Help You Take Control
Living with a long-term condition brings challenges and it's important to have the confidence, support and information to take control of your condition. This is called self care, which means looking after yourself in a healthy way, whether it’s taking your medicine properly or doing some exercise.
Self care doesn't mean you need to manage on your own. You can expect lots of support from the NHS, including:

The best way to protect children from measles is by vaccination with the MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) vaccine. In the UK children usually have their first MMR within a month of their first birthday and the second at around three and four months of age. It is important that your child completes the full course of MMR and has two vaccinations.
It is never too late for children to have MMR vaccination. If your child has missed their routine vaccinations, we would strongly recommend that you contact your Health Visitor, doctor or practice nurse to discuss and arrange vaccination.
If you have previously decided not to have your child vaccinated, we would urge you to reconsider. Now is a good time to think again, even if your child has already had measles, he/she still needs to have MMR vaccine to get protection against mumps and rubella.
General information on measles and the MMR vaccine may also be obtained from the following website: www.nhs.uk/vaccinations
