If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you will need to initially complete a travel form (SEE BELOW)giving details of your travel plans The Travel Form can be completed online or you can pick one up from the Surgery. This will include which countries/areas you will be visiting to determine what vaccinations are required. You will need to contact the Practice after 2 working days and the Receptionisit will inform you what injuections are required and will make you an appointment for the Travel Clinic if appropriate.
The Links below will take you to a very useful website which not only will it give you what the vaccionation requirements are but also a lot of general information which you should be aware of when travelling abroad. Please take time to read it through.
Yellow Fever Vaccinations
We are a registered UK Yellow Fever Vaccination Centre and are able to provide this vaccination for both our own patients and also non-registered patients. This service is not available on the NHS and we therefore have to charge a fee.
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 - as a second appointment mayl be required with the Practice Nurse to actually receive further vaccinations. Some vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
Most travel vaccines are provided free by this Practice on the NHS but some such as Rabies, Japanese Encaphalitis are not available on the NHS and will need to be paid for prior to being ordered.
Travel Health Questionnaire
To help us offer the appropriate advice, please fill out the online form before coming to see the nurse. The form must be with the Practice at least 2 working days before you make an appointment
