If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to complete a travel questionnaire form, which can be downloaded from this website or are available from reception . This will include which countries, and areas within countries, you are visiting and for how long. One of our Practice Nurses will then contact you to discuss your travel vaccination requirements and arrange an appointment.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
It is important to complete a travel questionnaire form as early as possible - at least six weeks before you travel - as an 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 vaccination appointment needs to be at least two 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.
Travel Health Questionnaire
To help us offer the appropriate advice, please fill out the online form and return this to the surgery. One of our Nurses will then call you to discuss your travel vaccination requirements and will book an appointment for you.
