Travel Advice & Immunisation

We hold dedicated travel clinics with our Practice Nurses. If you are travelling abroad please ask reception for a travel form or download one from the above “Travel Vaccinations” tab. One form per traveller should be completed together with an appropriate contact telephone number that you can be reached on at any time. Completed forms should be returned to the practice nurse as soon as possible.

The nurse will assess the form and work out an appropriate schedule based on the details given. You will be contacted with the information and any costs to be incurred. As some vaccinations need to be given over the course of a month, as well as a month before travel, it is essential that you complete your form, make any necessary payment and arrange your appointments as soon as possible.

Please be aware that all private vaccinations must be paid for before any vaccine can be ordered and appointments made. If you require vaccinations less than six weeks before you travel, please be aware that we will not be able to accommodate you at such short notice in which case you will be advised to attend an independent travel clinic.
