Travel Information

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel, as soon as your travel plans are confirmed you should contact the surgery to make an appointment with a practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. The nurse will need to know the countries and the areas within the countries that you will be visiting so that they can determine which vaccinations are required.

There May Be A Cost Involved

Some vaccinations are not kept in stock as they are not often requested. When required, these will be ordered for you on a private prescription and may 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.

Allow Enough Time

Please ensure that you make an appointment at least 8 weeks prior to your departure.

You should give us as much notice as possible as certain travel vaccinations have to be given over an extended period. Others need to be given well in advance to allow your body to develop immunity.
