If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to complete a pre-travel vaccination form available from the surgery reception. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting as well as accommodation and activities you plan to undertake to determine what vaccinations are required. There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below.
It is important to fill in this form, if possible, at least 6 weeks before you travel. The form will be checked by our nurses and you will then receive a telephone call from our administrative team to inform you of any vaccinations the nurse has recommended.
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. Vaccinations that need to be paid for will need to be paid for before your appointment with the nurse is made.
At your appointment the nurse will discuss your travel, advise you of any precautions you should take and administer your vaccinations. The nurse will then book any further appointments before you travel if you are having a course of vaccinations.
