Our practice nurses are available by appointment to offer medical advice regarding travel and vaccinations where appropriate. Please telephone reception to book an appointment.
Before travelling, we advise you to take some time to make preparations with regard to your health while you are abroad.
A good place to start is the Travel Health Pro website http://travelhealthpro.org.uk/general-advice-for-travellers/ which contains helpful information on what to do before, during and after your trip.
If you require travel vaccinations, please try to make an appointment with a practice nurse at least six weeks prior to travelling. For malaria tablets, please try to book an appointment with a doctor.
Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and 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.
Alternatively, you can visit a local travel health clinic (please see below).
Select the region you are travelling to find out more.

TRAVEL ASSESSMENT FORM
We offer a full travel advice and immunisation service. If you are travelling abroad, please request a travel health assessment link to complete for our practice nurse to review. She will review your medical records and advise what vaccinations you would need and what can be offered at the practice. You would need to complete in plenty of time (we recommend 6-8 weeks) before your journey.
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.
The following vaccines are immediately available in the surgery:
NHS: Diphtheria, Tetanus, Polio, Hepatitis A, Typhoid
Non-NHS: Hepatitis B (adult) £25 per dose (usually 3 or 4 required), Rabies £55 per dose (usually 3 required)
The following vaccines can be obtained by private prescription and a charge of £25 is payable to the surgery for each visit to administer. The cost of the vaccine is also payable to the chemist. You will be required to obtain the necessary vaccines and pay the pharmacy separately for these and return them to the practice for administration.
Hepatitis B (child) Meningitis ACWY, Japanese Encephalitis, Tick-borne Encephalitis.
Vaccines must be stored between 2 and 8 degrees in a refrigerator; the ideal way to do this is to hand them in to the practice as soon as possible.
All anti-malaria medications are provided privately. If recommended a private prescription will be issued at a cost of £15 and the cost of the medication will be payable to the pharmacy.
Yellow Fever vaccination is not provided in the surgery but available from specialist travel clinics.
