If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to fill in a travel questionnaire and hand it in to the surgery (please find the link below to download questionnaire or call into the surgery to collect). The nurse will then ring you to discuss your needs and make any appointments needed.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
It is important to make initial contact with us as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as more than one appointment may be required with the practice nurse to receive vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your last appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these 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.
Travel Health Questionnaire
There is a general health advice leaflet you can download for information. To help us offer the appropriate advice, please fill out the online form before coming to see the nurse.
