If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel please contact the surgery with details of the destination and dates of travel in order to determine what vaccinations are required. An appointment with the practice nurse will then be booked with you to be vaccinated and given advice regarding your health and safety abroad.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
It is important to make contact with us as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - in order for you to be vaccinated in time. These vaccines may have to be ordered and there may be a charge; please ask reception for details.
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.
