Travel Information

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 link below

Visit the National Travel Health Network and Centre website

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.

Travel vaccines are are only available on the NHS if recommended by the DoH.  Some vaccines are not available on the NHS and have to be ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge.  This is in effect a private service and therefore is a chargeable service.
