If you are travelling abroad you may require vaccinations relating to foreign travel. You will need to complete the travel form available below, or from reception at the surgery, at least 6 weeks prior to your travel date.
Travel Form and Advice form and advice leaflet combined
Travel Advice leaflet Advice leaflet only
Travel Form Travel form only
Telephone the surgery 5 days after returning the form to be advised as to whether or not you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel vaccinations.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
PLEASE contact the surgery in good time before your departure date to ensure a timely appointment with the nurse.
It is important you are covered with the correct vaccinations but please be aware we might not have the capacity to offer last minute travel appointments and you may need to attend a private travel clinic.
Only Hepatitis A and Typhoid are offered on the NHS to our registered patients and all other vaccines will be chargeable, please see Non NHS travel vaccine tab for costs. Also some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge.
NB at the moment we are experiencing a national shortage of vaccines so some will not be available. The practice nurse will advise you of these at your appointment.
