If you represent a company, we can advise you on the best approach to employee vaccinations.
How it works
When you come in for your treatment we will discuss the test and vaccination with you and make you as comfortable and calm as possible.
You will first have the Mantoux test. This involves a single injection into the arm. You may experience mild itching or swelling
You will have to return exactly two days later for us to ‘read’ the reaction
If your Mantoux test is negative, you will be given your BCG vaccination
A small red spot will usually develop within a few weeks of the vaccination; this will heal to form a small scar
If your Mantoux test comes back positive you will require a chest X-ray, which we can organise with the Nuffield private hospital
Mantoux test: £100 (which includes the appointment fee).
BCG vaccine: £100 (which includes the appointment fee).
