If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you must attend the surgery in order to complete a travel questionnaire. This is to establish which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required. There is a £40 Travel advice charge before any travel health can be discussed with the practice, please ensure this is paid to reception in a timely manner as we cannot process your request until this is paid.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below:
It is important to attend the surgery and complete the questionnaire as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - a consultation will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines MUST BE ordered by your pharmacy as they are not a stock vaccine. Your consultation 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.
