If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make a telephone appointment first with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within those countries you are visiting to determine what vaccinations you will require. There is further information about countries and the vaccinations required on the links below
It is important to make this initial telephone appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse at the surgery to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as many of them are not a stock vaccines. The Practice Nurse will book the second appointment.
Some travel vaccinations do incur a charge as they are not included in the services provided by the NHS. For full details of fees charged please contact the Practice Nurse Reception.
