Please obtain all the travel information from the link below and Based on this if you require any vaccination please complete the travel questionnaire link at the bottom of this page. Call the surgery few days after completing the questionnaire. If you require any vaccines, the nurse will be able to give this. She will not give you general travel medical advice. It is your resposibility to find out travel medical advice from travel agent or travel websites. (You will have only 10 minutes appointment with the nurse).
If you require malaria tablet this can be purchased from the Pharmacy. Some tablets will require a private prescription from the doctor. If you let us know the travel destination and number of days you are away, a prescription will be done which you can collect from the surgery.
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an 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.
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.
