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.
Please download our travel consultation record card and hand it in at Reception or email firstname.lastname@example.org before making an appointment to see the Practice Nurse.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
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.
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.
Certain non-NHS work attracts a fee as private work. These include private sick-notes, insurance forms, HGV medicals, Fitness to Travel Certificates etc. These should be handed over to the reception desk.
A list of current fees for these services is displayed in reception.
