If you are planning a trip abroad and you require vaccinations and/or travel advice please pick up a travel questionnaire from reception or see link below to submit online, this will include details of 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 drop your completed questionnaire in at your usual surgery as early as possible - ideally at least 8 weeks before you travel - to allow the nurse to review your travel plans and order the appropriate vaccinations before your appointment. Your 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. The nurse will discuss these vaccinations and charges with you and we will require payment before your appointment.
