There are also links to information leaflets about diseases, tests, investigations, support groups and medications and links to websites such as NHS Direct and patient.co.uk where you can find more information to help you understand about what you read in your record. This is available for patients aged 16 and over. Please read our leaflets below.  Anybody wishing to access this needs to contact the Practice Manager.

Kenalog Injections (Hayfever)

We do not provide Kenalog injections for hayfever here at Alcester Health Centre, the injection consists of a steroid medication, which whilst effective at controlling hay fever, has risks associated with it which makes the risk: benefit ratio very much against its use.

We can offer standard medication for use against hayfever and are happy to discuss this at a consultation.
