Flu vaccination by injection, commonly known as the "flu jab" is available every year on the NHS to protect adults (and some children) at risk of flu and its complications.

Flu can be unpleasant, but if you are otherwise healthy it will usually clear up on its own within a week. However, flu can be more severe in certain people listed below,

The flu vaccination is given free on the NHS as an annual injection to:

  • anyone aged 65 and over
  • pregnant women
  • children and adults with an underlying health condition (particularly long-term heart or respiratory disease, diabetes, kidney/liver disease, brain/nervous system, spleen)
  • children and adults with weakened immune systems
    children aged six months to two years at risk of flu

If you think the above includes you - book an appointment today at the practice.

This year we are offering various appointment dates outside of our normal opening times to allow you easy access to the surgery if you are working during the week, for example you can attend one of our Saturday or early/late times. Please see schedule of dates or enquire by ringing the receptionist at either surgeries. Thank you.

About Us

This website has been designed to tell you about the practice and the services that we offer. Please read it carefully. We trust that you will find it helpful and informative.

The Westerham Practice covers much of the North Downs area, from Limpsfield to Riverhead/Dunton Green and Halstead, and Westerham/Biggin Hill to Marlpit Hill, including many small villages, Toys Hill, Ide Hill, Crockham Hill, Brasted and Tatsfield. The practice is based at two main centres, Winterton Surgery just off Market Square in Westerham and The Medical Centre on the main road in Sundridge.

We are a dispensing practice and our Sundridge Surgery has a fully stocked dispensary and qualified dispenser. All new patients registering with our practice who live more than a mile from the chemist will be able to choose to have their drugs dispensed to them at the surgery or at their homes if the doctor is visiting. Arrangements can be made for the housebound to have their repeat medication delivered.

The doctors do occasionally support medical students to further their studies. This may involve the doctor requesting your permission for a student to be present at your consultation, but please do not feel obliged in any way to consent to this. Please note that the partners will not accept patients outside the practice area except under special circumstances. If you move outside the area, please re-register with a GP near your new home.

Clinical Commissioning Group

NHS England has established Clinical Commissioning Groups throughout the country. The CCG for this area can be contacted at:
