If you require any Vaccinations relating to international 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. Please book a telephone appointment to discuss this.
Travel Vaccinations that are available on the NHS are provided free of charge to all our Patients but we cannot provide these services to any Patients that are registered as 'Temporary Residents'.
Please make an appointment six weeks before you are due to travel as you may need more than one visit for a course of Vaccinations.
Malaria tablets can be purchased over the counter at your local Pharmacy.
We have a Travel Vaccination Form which needs to be completed for each Patient who is travelling abroad. This will assist us with our assessment of what vaccines you may require. A copy of this is below to be completed before your vaccinations.
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 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.
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.
