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.
Please complete our Travel Health Assessment Form below, which we require to be completed prior to any travel vaccinations being given. We have found, from many years of giving travel vaccinations obtaining as much information as possible in advance of an appointment ensures we can plan for you to undertake the appropriate course of vaccines in a timely fashion. Once you have completed the form, please hand it into Reception who will pass this to a member of our nursing team who will assess the form and contact you to book an appointment.
You should also note that many vaccinations are not provided by the NHS and accordingly a fee may be payable. The nurse will advise you about this, and will as part of the consultation provide you with a form detailing the vaccinations you will require and the cost involved . We require full payment in advance of the course of vaccinations, either by cash or credit or debit card. Our Reception staff will collect your payment. Please note that where a vaccine charge applies it is applicable to all patients irrespective of age.

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.
