If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to come into the surgery and fill in a travel assessment form. Once you have filled this in and handed it into the surgery, please give us a call a week later to see which vaccinations you need and if so make an appointment with the nurse.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
|Europe & Russia||North America|
|Central America||South America|
|Middle East||Central Asia|
|East Asia||Australasia and Pacific|
It is important to fill in the travel assessment forms as soon as possible- at least 6 weeks before you travel – as an appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations if needed. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your 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
Hepatitis A , B & Diptheria, Tetanus & Polio vaccinations
Unfortunately, due to a national shortage we cannot give these vaccinations to patients who require them.
You can still fill in a holiday vaccinations form if you need to, as you may require other vaccines, but please be aware of the above.
We offer healthy travel advice & will continue to try and obtain vaccines on a daily basis.
We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

To help us offer the appropriate advice, please fill out the online form before coming to see the nurse. Once you have sent this it will be handed over to the nurse. Please give the surgery a call a week later to see what vaccinations you need and if so to make an appointment.
