If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel please telephone the receptionist leaving your name date of birth and contact telephone number, your destination(s) and the date you will be travelling. The practice nurse will contact you, once she has developed your vaccination plan, to arrange an appointment.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
It is important to contact the surgery as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as an appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. We may have to order some vaccines as not all are a stock vaccine item. 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.
If you think you may require travel vaccinations, please request a form from reception, complete the form and return it to the surgery. The practice nurse will then review the form, work out a vaccination program for you and if required, will contact you to arrange the necessary appointment(s).
To help us offer the appropriate advice, please fill out the online form before coming to see the nurse.
