If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel we advise you first go online to http://www.fitfortravel.nhs.uk/home.aspx to find out if you need any travel vaccinations. The FIT FOR TRAVEL website is very user friendly.
If you do require vaccinations, you need to make a 20 minute 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. We require a travel questionnaire be completed prior to your appointment; you can either download the questionnaire on this page and bring it with you or come 10 minutes early for your appointment and ask our reception team for the questionnaire.
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 you may need a second appointment with the practice nurse as some vaccinations need 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.
