If you think you may 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.
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel. If it is less than 3 weeks before you travel, you WILL need to contact a private vaccination clinic such as www.masta-travel-health.com or www.aquapharmacy.co.uk/travel-clinic
To help us offer the appropriate advice, please complete and print out the travel health questionnaire form below. You need to then come into the surgery with your completed form & reception will book you an appointment with one of our nurses.

Some travel vaccines are not available on the NHS, this is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS. These private vaccines will incur a charge & not all private travel vaccines are available at the surgery, in this instance we may refer you to a private travel clinic to access these vaccines. The vaccines that are considered private include; Rabies, Japanese Encephalitis, Meningitis ACWY & Yellow Fever (this list is not exhaustive). Some malaria prophylactic tablets are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge.
