Patients travelling abroad should always take advice on what vaccinations they need and whether anti-malarial tablets are indicated.
We are not able to offer advice to patients on the vaccinations they may require but we can recommend using a registered private travel clinic or taking advice from the website www.travelhealthpro.org.uk
NHS vaccinations are available from the surgery free of charge.
Please be aware that we require 8 weeks notice prior to your travel date, in order to assess your travel vaccination requirements and to allow any vaccinations to take effect.
We ask that patients requesting vaccines for travel, complete the attached form and bring or send it into reception together with either the printed destination advice sheet from the Travel Health Pro website, or a recommendation from a private travel clinic . The Practice Nurse will review the form and, if appropriate, arrange for an appointment with the Nurse for vaccination/s.
NHS vaccinations are the following:
Any patient requiring private vaccination of the following
Hepatitis B (For Travel only – we do not do Occupational Health)
Tick borne encephalitis
will be required to pay in full (by cheque or cash) before the vaccine is ordered.
Patients who are unsure about their vaccination record should check with the Practice Nurse, in a standard 10 minute consultation, before further vaccination. Following this consultation the patient will need to rebook following the guidelines above.
