Our practice nurses are available by appointment to offer medical advice regarding travel and vaccinations where appropriate. Please telephone reception and choose OPTION 4 to book an appointment.
Our nurses can provide travel health advice and arrange for appropriate immunisations.
Vaccines need time to take effect and some may require a course over several weeks and 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.

Travel Vaccination Prices
Travel advice is covered by the NHS; however some vaccinations and prescriptions are only available privately. Payment for non-NHS services must be made at the first travel appointment. For more details please contact reception on the above telephone number using OPTION 4.
