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.
We are able to provide a full range of travel vaccinations and the surgery is a designated Yellow Fever Centre. Immunisations are given by the nurse/GP. Some vaccinations need to be done as part of a course, so it is helpful to plan ahead.
You do not need to be a registered patient at the Surgery to access the Yellow Fever Clinic. If you are planning to travel abroad, please complete a travel health questionnaire which is available to download or collected from reception.
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. Some vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine.
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.
Travel Health Questionnaire
To help us offer the appropriate advice, please fill out the online form and return to the surgery before your appointment. This will allow sufficient time for your records to be reviewed.
