If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign 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. There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below.
|Europe & Russia||North America|
|Central America||South America|
|Middle East||Central Asia|
|East Asia||Australasia and Pacific|
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible – at least 8-12 weeks before you travel – as a further appointment s may be required with the practice nurse to complete the vaccinations. Appointments cannot be made unless we have received a completed Travel Questionnaire ( see link below).
Some 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. Please ask Reception for charges This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
Travel Health Questionnaire
Some of the vaccines we offer are not available on the NHS. We have put together this list to help you. If you would like to book an appointment with the nurse for travel, this is a free consultation and we will only charge for the vaccines we give you.
Please note you will need a consultation with the nurse before any vaccines are given. Please allow 15 minutes for a consultation.
We will ask you to pay after you have had your consultation. Please note we only take cash. Sorry for any inconvenience.
