Workplace / Job Role Vaccinations in Cardiff, Newport, Swansea & Bristol

Wales' first Registered Private GP Practice
HIW & CQC Registered Clinics

As part of our Occupational Health services, we have extensive experience in providing vaccinations for Occupational Sectors both in clinic and on-site at your work place.

Vaccination can provide protection to your employees exposed to hazards and risks in the workplace. Under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 2002 (COSHH) and the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999, the health of employees, by law is to be protected by employers. When risk of infection is known employers must take appropriate steps to protect their employees.
