Foreign Travel Advice
If you require any vaccinations for foreign travel, you need to complete the online Travel Questionnaire (*see link below), and then telephone the surgery to make an appointment with the practice nurse. She will need to know which countries (and areas within countries) you are visiting, to determine what vaccinations are required. Please look at the NHS travel website before you come.
*Online Travel Questionnaire
It is important to make the first appointment as early as possible - at least 8 weeks before you travel.
You will also need a second appointment which needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel, to allow the vaccines to work.
These vaccines generally have to be ordered on a private prescription and there is a charge, over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because travel vaccination is not included in the services provided by the NHS. Please bring a means of payment with you. We accept cash, cheques and payment by debit or credit card.
Please note that before completing your travel form please check the following website http://www.fitfortravel.nhs.uk/home.aspx.
