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 6-8 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
IF YOU ARE TRAVELLING IN UNDER 4WKS, YOU WILL BE DIRECTED TO A TRAVEL CLINIC
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.
Travel Health Questionnaire
To help us offer the appropriate advice, please collect from the surgery or print (from the link below) a travel information questionnaire. This will need to be completed and returned at least 7 working days prior to your appointment with the nurse so that it can be processed. Please complete one form per person.
Please be aware that if your date of travel is LESS THAN 6-8 weeks and/or is of a complex nature, you may need to be referred on to the travel clinic.
Please remember, if you are travelling in under 4wks you will be directed to a travel clinic
