It is important to make contact with the surgery as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - so that a nurse can contact you regarding your travel requirements. Please have your travel and medical history available, as well as clear details regarding the countries and duration of your travel, when the nurse contacts you.
Following your telephone consultation a nurse appointment will normally be given for you to receive your vaccinations. Some vaccines may not be stocked at the Practice and may have to be ordered.
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.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below:
