Travel Clinic

Our practice nurses are available by appointment to offer medical advice regarding travel and vaccinations where appropriate. Please visit our reception and bring with you the completed Travel Risk Assessment form (available to download below or from our reception). You will be given an appointment with the nurse who will produce a personalised vaccination schedule for you.

Travel Risk Assessment Form

Please be aware that there may be a charge for the vaccinations. This can only be confirmed once the nurse has seen your questionnaire and ascertained which vaccinations are required.

Do plan ahead - don't leave your vaccinations until the last minute. Please allow at least SIX weeks before you travel.

If you are going abroad at short notice we may not have a suitable appointment to offer you within the required time frame. If this happens you will be require to obtain your vaccines from another provider. Click here for further information form NHS Choices website

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to complete the Travel Risk Assessment Form. This will requets 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

 Europe & Russia  North America
 Central America  South America
 Carribean  Africa
 Middle East  Central Asia
 East Asia  Australasia and Pacific

Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription (eg Yellow Fever) 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.
