Travel Health

Do you need vaccinations?

If your vaccinations are available on the NHS, you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within countries you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.

It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 - 8 weeks before you travel - as a second (and maybe third) appointment may be required with the practice nurse to complete the course.

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel not covered by the NHS you will need to visit a private travel clinic as they are not provided at this surgery eg Yellow Fever, Rabies etc.

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.
