Foreign travel advice
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. It is important to make this initial appointment at least 6 weeks before you travel. Further appointments may be necessary due to the requirement of a course of vaccinations, or if the vaccinations have to be ordered.
- Your initial appointment with the nurse will take 30 minutes.
- To help us offer the appropriate advice, please fill out the online form before coming to see the nurse.
Travel Questionnaire Pre-Appointment
- If you are travelling to several countries or taking a cruise it will be helpful if you can bring your itinerary with you
- 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.
- At the current time we will require payment at the time of your appointment either by cash or cheque.
- Yellow fever – we are not a Yellow Fever Centre. The following local surgeries are licensed to administer this for you.
