We can advise you on travel health and what vaccinations you require relating to foreign travel.
If you would like travel advice contact the surgery and leave a telephone message for a nurse to phone you back. The nurse will discuss with you over the telephone where you are travelling to and what vaccinations are required. She will then book an apointment for you to attend the surgery to have the vaccintions.
There is a £10 charge for a travel certificate and for any travel vaccinations that are not available free on the NHS.
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. Some vaccines have to be ordered as they are not kept in stock. 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. Click here for a list of our current travel clinic fees.
