Local Pharmacies provide a comprehensive travel clinic, please contact them direct.
The practice have dedicated times allocated for our travel clinic on several days of the week, by appointment only. This clinic is run by travel health nurse practitioners who have had training in foreign travel issues. For this reason we must endeavour to use the allocated clinic times only.
Travel questionnaires are available to collect at the main Practice reception, and branch surgeries reception, or downloaded from Practice website. This must be handed back within at least 6 weeks before you intend to travel, due to the time necessary to assess which immunisations are required, suitability for immunisation, arranging prescriptions, ordering of vaccines and allocation of appointments. We do not accept any forms within 6 weeks of departure date. In these cases you are advised to contact a private travel clinic.
Please complete your travel questionnaire, adding any other information which you feel may be relevant for your travel. Then hand the form to the receptionist who will pass it to the practice nurse for assessment of immunisations recommended and required. The practice nurse will contact you by telephone, or letter, within 3 weeks to arrange appointments for immunisations, some of which there may be a charge (where applicable, payments are required prior to administering immunisations), and discuss travel health risks and advice.

Please print off this form, complete it and then hand into the surgery
Following on from this appointment you will have to return for the agreed injections, for some of which there may be a charge (where applicable payments are required prior to administering immunisations).

There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
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.
