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.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
PLEASE NOTE THESE LINKS MAY NOT WORK DURING THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 5-6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not kept in stock. Your second 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
To help us offer the appropriate advice, please fill out the online form before coming to see the nurse.
Please remember to book your appointment with the nurse.
You will NOT be contacted prior to your appointment as your health needs will be discussed when you arrive.
WE MUST RECEIVE THIS FORM AT LEAST ONE WEEK BEFORE YOUR APPOINTMENT TO ALLOW US TIME TO REVIEW YOUR RECORDS AND ESTABLISH WHICH VACCINES YOU MAY REQUIRE.
PLEASE NOTE: IF YOU ARE DUE TO TRAVEL WITHIN TWO WEEKS, WE CANNOT PROVIDE VACCINATIONS AT THE SURGERY AND YOU WILL NEED TO ATTEND A TRAVEL CLINIC, WHICH WILL CHARGE FOR THEIR SERVICES
