TRAVEL ADVICE

Foreign travel

We are able to arrange most vaccinations required for foreign travel. Please consult the practice sufficiently early.

We need at least six weeks prior to departure so we can carry out the mandatory checks required, allow an appropriate interval between vaccinations if needed, and ensure that you are offered appropriate advice.

Please note that, although most travel vaccinations are available from the surgery at no cost, some drugs such as for malaria prophylaxis have to be purchased by the patient from a pharmacist (some on a private prescription).

Travellers who require Hepatitis B vaccine (which is a course of 3 vaccinations) will incur a charge of approximately £25 for each vaccination which is to be paid at the time of each appointment.

Please ask reception for the current charge when you book your visit.

Our practice nurses will give advice where required.

We regret that we cannot offer travel vaccinations to temporary residents or overseas visitors.

Making an appointment

1) Phone and make a 30 minute travel appointment with the nurse.

2) Please complete a travel questionaire and bring it with to your travel appointment. Travel questionaires are available at the reception, or to save time you may download and print a copy from the link below:

Private commercial services

Patients requiring travel immunisations at less than six weeks notice are advised to check with the surgery whether a short notice appointment is available but must be prepared to contact one of the organisations currently providing a private commercial service if we cannot meet your requirement in time:

Summary

We normally require six weeks notice for travel immunisations.

If you are unable to give six weeks notice you may wish to check whether we have a short notice cancellation but should be prepared to arrange your immunisations through a private clinic if no appointment is available.

Patients may be required to pay privately for some travel immunisations.
