If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to complete one of our Travel Vaccination forms either online via this website or obtain a form from Reception. Our Practice Nurse will then go through your form and determine if/what you require for your visit. Our Nurse will contact you to advise you and if an appointment is required our Nurse will deal with this for you.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
It is important to let the surgery know as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - Some vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine, and you may need your vaccination at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work, so good notice helps us and you.
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.

To help us offer the appropriate advice, please fill out the online form before coming to see the nurse.
