Travel

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.

To help us offer the appropriate advice, please print out and complete our travel risk assessment . THIS MUST BE HANDED IN AT THE SURGERY A MINIMUM OF 7 WEEKS BEFORE TRAVEL.

The nurse will then look at the form and if you require vaccinations you will be phoned and a suitable appointment made.

Please note that our nurses do get booked up so anyone travelling within 6 weeks are unlikely to be seen. Some courses of vaccinations take two or three months to complete so please take this into consideration when planning your journey. It is suggested that you have your vaccinations 6-12 weeks before you travel. If you are within that time we can offer advice but may be unable to give you the vaccinations. We can however signpost you to a private provider.  Vaccinations attracting a fee will only be given if paid for in advance, so please bring either cash or a cheque book with you to your appointment. We do not have a card payment facility.

Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these also incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS. Please call the surgery for a current list of vaccination charges.
