Travel injections are available through our travel service. If you are travelling abroad our Travel Clerks will deal with all the administration.
Please collect a Travel Form from Reception or Download and Print the Questionnaire below, please complete the questionnaires and return to us a minimum of 6 weeks before your departure date. If you are needing any vaccinations and it is under the 6 week period then we may ask you to contact a Private Travel Clinic instead. Extra charges are made for protection against some illness, such as Rabies, Yellow Fever, Japanese Encephalitis and Malaria.
Once you have completed and in your Travel Questionnaire to the best of your knowledge, one of our Travel Clerks will contact you if you require any vaccinations or advice pre-travel and discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required. They will then book you in with one of the practice nurse for an appointment/appointments for whatever course of vaccination you may need before you go on your travels.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
Our Travel Information
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These 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.
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.
