Private Vitamin Injections including Vitamin B12 and Vitamin D
If you are constantly feeling run down and tired or you struggle to shake off illness, then it’s possible you may be deficient in Vitamin B12 or Vitamin D. Of course, those symptoms could be related to something else and that’s why we’ll check you over to make sure there’s not something else going on that is responsible for you not quite feeling yourself.
Our private GP service can be used by both registered and non-registered patients for easy access to a wide range of the latest vitamin injections in Liverpool. Each vitamin injection is provided in a convenient 15-30 minute appointment with private GP Dr Arun Ghosh with time for a consultation about your health, symptoms and treatment plan, including aftercare and possible side-effects.
Patients may be asked to conduct a blood test before receiving the vitamin injection to confirm you are low or deficient in that particular Vitamin. Patients can also ask their NHS GP to conduct this test or to bring their recent blood test results as confirmation.
The range of symptoms caused by B12 deficiency can be persistent tiredness or lack of energy (lethargy), plus general and ongoing fatigue and low mood are also common.
Receiving a large dose of vitamin B12 through injections isn't likely to harm your health, but can interfere with the effectiveness of some medications. Please inform your GP prior to your injection of any medications and also let your NHS doctor know.

Vitamin D is sometimes known as the "sunshine vitamin" and getting enough of it can be difficult in the UK, and North West in particular, as the majority of vitamin D we get is derived from the sun and some from our diet. It is recommended that people take vitamin D supplements during the winter months October to March, but should you need an additional boost you should get booked in for an added dose of Vitamin D in the form of an injection.
Some people are unable to make enough vitamin D for a number of reasons.
- Not getting enough sunlight on your skin. This is more of a problem in the most northern parts of the world where there is less sun. You may also be foreign or a student in the UK and suffer from deficiency since your arrival from sunnier climates.
- You may also stay inside. For example, those in hospital for a long time, or housebound people. If you cover up a lot of your body with clothing when outside e.g. when wearing veils such as the niqab or burqa.
- People with pigmented skin (because less sunshine gets through the skin).
- Not enough vitamin D in Your diet is more likely to occur if you follow a strict vegetarian or vegan diet, or a non-fish-eating diet.
Vitamin D is vital for the body to properly absorb the required levels of calcium and phosphate. Mild to moderate vitamin D deficiency can lead to bone pain and osteoporosis and could make you more prone to a fracture if you had a fall. More severe levels of deficiency can lead to the development of conditions such as rickets or osteomalacia.
Some studies have shown vitamin D deficiency has now been linked to breast cancer, colon cancer, prostate cancer, heart disease, and depression among others. The studies show that people with higher levels of vitamin D have a lower risk of disease, although they do not definitively prove that lack of vitamin D causes the disease.
Vitamin D injections are usually given in the buttocks, which is not painful, though it can be given in the upper arm if you prefer.
