Travel Advice and Immunisation
Please use our Travel Risk Assessment form to book your travel vaccinations.
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 8 weeks before your planned travel date. Generally, we have appointments available 8 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 2 are travelling then 2 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 and tetanus, typhoid and Hepatitis A vaccinations are available free on the NHS.
If you are unable to attend an appointment, please contact us to cancel the appointment so that we can treat another patient/s.

It is with regret that we must inform you that Childrens Clinics which were provided here by our Health Visiting Team have been transferred to Somercotes Childrens Centre which is sited next to Somercotes Nursery and Infant School. Their sessions are 13:00 to 14:30 every Tuesday.
The Health Visitor Teams have been re-organised by their managers which also means that some families will have different health visitors.
Our current Health Visitors will retain families living within Somercotes only.
It should be noted that most of the Health Visitors share an office based at Alfreton Health Centre and our patients first point of contact remains on 01773 546800.
