Our Practice Nurses are able to advise you on health matters for travel abroad. You may need several weeks to complete a course of immunisations so please give them 8 weeks notice when ever possible.
Please note the surgery only provides NHS travel vaccinations (Diphtheria, Tetanus & Polio, Typhoid, Hepatitis A & Cholera).
You may need to attend a private clinic and pay for non NHS travel vaccinations and/or malaria medication. You can access a private clinic before seeing a nurse at the surgery.
To help us offer the appropriate advice, please print out and complete the travel health questionnaire below and return it to the surgery as soon as possible. A copy of this questionnaire is also available from reception.
Please make an initial 20 minute appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. The countries and areas within countries that you are visiting determine what vaccinations are required. 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.
