Travel advice - please see the above tab.
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to complete the travel form and return it to the Surgery for the Nurse to look at. You will then need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements (approx 5 days after submitting your form) 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.
Travel Health Questionnaire
To help us offer the appropriate advice, please fill out the online form before coming to see the nurse.
Travel Risk Assessment Form
Please note, you will need to contact the Surgery 4 days after sending this form to make an appointment with the Nurse, which will either be for 20 minutes or 30 minutes depending on the level of advice needed for your trip.
