If you are travelling within the next two weeks, you will need to go to a travel clinic, which you can find online.
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. Prior to this, you need to complete our travel health questionnaire form - below. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required. Once you have submitted the form please make a nurse appointment to discuss travel. This should be 30 minutes for your first appointment.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the link below
It is important to complete the form as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel, as more than one appointment may be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. Specific vaccines may have to be ordered in as we do not hold a stock of all travel vaccines. Your final/single 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. You should be prepared that there is very likely to be a cost involved in vaccinations needed when travelling outside of the EU.
