If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to complete the travel questionnaire below and provide a telephone number for the Practice Nurse to contact you 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 a £40 Travel advice charge before any travel health can be discussed with the practice, please ensure this is paid to reception in a timely manner as we cannot process your request until this is paid.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below:
It is important to complete the questionnaire as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - a consultation will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered by your pharmacy as they are not a stock vaccine. Your consultation 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.
