If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required. There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below:
As a surgery we provide a private clinic for travel vaccinations. Travel Clinic appointments are a private service and not part of the NHS, the appointments with our Nursing team are free of charge, however we charge an administrative fee of £20.00 per person (age 16+) & £5 per child (under 16) for processing travel forms and to cover the cost of the extra administration time and nurse’s time required to run the clinic.
Appointments CANNOT be made over the telephone, they will need to be booked in person where the administration fee will need to be paid in cash.
The Practice has the right to refuse an appointment for travel if we have limited appointment availability as NHS work must take priority or if it felt that the time frame is too short to complete the appropriate medical requirements prior to travel.
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 12 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 months 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.
