If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to complete a travel form and hand it in to our reception. You will be asked to contact the practice 72 hours after submission and we will let you know whether any vaccines are required for your trip. Once you have this information you should 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.
It is important to make complete your form and make this this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment may be required for booster vaccinations one month after your first vaccination.
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.
If you need malaria medication this is not available on the NHS, some medications are available to buy from the pharmacy, others require a private prescription. The nurse will advise you which malaria tablets are recommended depending on where you are travelling to.
