Many of you will have heard of the Gardasil vaccine that is available for preventing disease caused by HPV (Human Papilloma Virus). It is a vaccine with two purposes. It prevents genital warts caused by HPV and prevents most cancerous changes to the cervix (neck of the womb) caused by HPV. It is hoped that this vaccine will dramatically reduce the numbers of these conditions we see. At the moment, it is only available on the NHS to young girls/women.
In England it is also available for men who have sex with men.
We are pleased to provide this vaccine to male and female patients over the age of 16, if it is appropriate for them. Call for more details 0845 868 4480
