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
For those patients wishing to access travel vaccinations please bear in mind for many vaccinations to be effective they need to be given eight weeks prior to travel. Therefore please give sufficient time by requesting a travel appointment at least eight weeks before your planned travel date. Generally, we have appointment available eight weeks in advance but if you are booking late or if we do not have any nurses appointments available you will need to attend a private travel clinic.
Travel to exotic locations, in some cases multiply locations is the norm these days, but careful consideration needs to be given by the nurse to what vaccinations are required, therefore travel appointments are 30 minutes in duration and we can see two family members at a time. If more than two are travelling then two appointments will need to be made.
When booking the appointment you will be asked to complete a travel questionnaire, in order for the nurse to determine which vaccinations you need prior to your appointment. It is also important to remember that only Diphtheria, polio & tetanus, typhoid and Hepatitis A vaccinations are available free on the NHS.
If you are unable to attend an appointment please contact to cancel the appointment we can treat another patient/s.
If you require any further information regarding our travel services please contact reception.
