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
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These 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. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
Please print and complete the travel questionnaire below to be handed in to the surgery, or come along to the surgery to fill out this form. The travel questionnaire needs to be completed before your appointment so that the nurses can assess fully the cover that will be required for your trip.
*Please also be aware that nurses appointments are in high demand, so it is important that you book this appointment well in advance of your trip*
