Unfortunately due to staff changes we are currently unable to offer routine travel advice. Please contact your local community pharmacy for advice.
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to complete a travel form and hand this in to Reception. An appointment will be made for you to see the Practice Nurse. The Practice Nurse will review your form and will contact you, advising which immunisations are required. If you are up to date and do not require any new immunisations, this appointment will be cancelled by the Practice Nurse once she has contacted you.
Some vaccinations are kept in stock at the surgery but others require a prescription. The vaccine must be obtained from the pharmacy by you and brought to your appointment.
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 may be required with the practice nurse to complete the course.
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.
Please note that we do not provide Yellow Fever vaccinations.
