Travel Vaccinations for Our Patients
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to complete a Travel Vaccination Advice Form.
You can also obtain a travel vaccination advice form from our reception desk, please note all travel vaccination forms must be completed and returned to the surgery.
Once you have done this, one of our practice nurses will then look into your travel plans, this will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting and determine what vaccinations are required. Please give our nurses as much information about your travel plans to ensure you are given the most accurate advice.
A member of our travel immunisation team will then contact you to inform you of what our nurses advise and book any relevant appointments you may need and inform you of any costs for Non NHS funded vaccinations.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below:
It is important to inform us as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as an appointment will be required with the practice nurse to receive the relevant vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your 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.
