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
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment may be required. Some vaccinations are not available via the NHS and are subject to a charge. Please ask at reception when you book your appointment for details of any charges..
Anti-malarial medication and some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge.
Travel Health Questionnaire -
Please complete your travel questionnaire by clicking on the link below. Please include as much information you can regarding the area you are visiting and any relevant information about the accommodation you are staying in i.e hotel, back packing etc.
Your completed qustionnaire will be reviewed by one of our practice nurses to establish what vaccininations you need for your holiday.
Please contact the surgery one week after submitting the questionnaire to book an appointment. If your vaccinations are up to date the receiptionist will be able to tell you.
To help us offer the appropriate advice, please complete a travel form prior to making an appointment to see the nurse.
Forms are available from the practice.
