Stay Safe and Healthy Abroad
If you are travelling abroad you may need to be vaccinated. Please make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss the vaccinations you will need, which will depend on where you are travelling.
It is important to make this initial appointment at least eight weeks before you travel so that the vaccines can be ordered. You will need a second appointment to receive the vaccinations. Your second appointment should be at least two weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription which cost more than the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
Travel Health Checklist
To help us offer the appropriate advice, a travel questionnaire needs to be completed. Once this has been done one of our secretaries will contact you to book an appointment in one of our travel clinics and will pass your form to the nurse.
Rabies and Yellow Fever vaccinations are no longer provided at the practice.
Request Your Travel Vaccinations
Any forms sent less than 6 weeks from the date of travel will be rejected – you will need to consult a private clinic if there is less than 6 weeks until your date of travel.
