Please submit your travel form and then make an appointment at least 6 weeks before your travel date.
If you require any vaccinations for foreign travel you will need an appointment with a practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements (the itinerary etc.) in order to determine which vaccinations are required.
Before booking the appointment you will need to complete and submit a questionnaire, in order to help us offer you the best advice during the appointment. We will not be able to book you a travel vaccination appointment before the questionnaire has been submitted.
You can complete your travel questionnaire either online (see link below) or using a paper copy available from reception. This questionnaire should be submitted online or at reception at least 3 days before you book your appointment with us.
It is important to make your appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel – as a schedule of travel vaccinations may require more than one visit to the surgery. Please be aware that appointments are subject to availability.
When you come in for your appointment, we ask you to bring in your own personal travel vaccination record from any other surgery or travel clinic, if you have one.
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. You can now pay for travel vaccinations with a credit or debit card and we still accept cheques with a guarantee card.
You will receive an email to confirm receipt of the completed questionnaire, please do not take this as confirmation of an appointment. You will then need to book an appointment with us at least 10 working days after the questionnaire has been submitted.
It is also recommended that you read the following important advice;
